I loved this book. The characterizations leaped alive on the page. I could see the grandmother, the granddaughter and her mother. I want to read all of [a:Miriam Toews|8359|Miriam Toews|https://images.gr-assets.com/authors/1322022303p2/8359.jpg]'s novels. Peppered with priceless humorous bits, sadness and trauma, this little family carries on its days including a singular trip to Fresno, Raisin Capital of the World.

Beautifully written. Though not YA, it would be great reading for 14 teens. Adults will recognize elements of their teenhood in the sharp observations of the protagonist.

I so wanted to like this book, but I found it boring, taking me weeks to read. I appreciate the premise, and the writing was good, I was just not engaged with the style in which it was written.

I wouldn't say don’t read it, I would say be prepared for a slow move and some questions about what you just read.

I would like to explain what the book is about but the inside flap explains it all. Period. It’s all there. Read the flap, you’ve read the book.
