From Sandi Rosenthal
Author: Ayelet Waldman
Through 90 percent of the book I hated the main character. She is spoiled, careless and self-involved. She had an affair with a married man who had a young son; he left his wife and married her. Then she proceeded to treat his 5 year old son, her step son, with such carelessness and unconcern that I almost put the book down. At the end of the book, she has a realization that turns her around.
