This is a must-read novel for anyone who has ever sat at the kid table . . . or is still sitting there!

Over the course of five family events Ingrid chronicles her generation’s attempt to grow up — from the laugh-out-loud dysfunctional moments to the more serious situations.

Ingrid lack of empathy and questionable morality lead her to make twisted choices. She is not the only one to struggle throught this year though: extended family members will deal with anorexia, identity crisis, alcoholism, ect.

The  episodic structure serves as a metaphor for the  family: a whole made of several disparate parts with some unanswered questions.

The book is a bit confusing because of numerous characters, however the family tree at the beginning helps to keep track of everyone.

February 3rd, there is a PA Day. I know you’re sad. 😦 If you’re looking for something to do, we’ll be showing 2 movies on the big screen at the library. There will be Beauty and the Beast in the morning at 10:45, and Pete’s Dragon in the afternoon at 1:30 pm. This would be a fun outing if you have to babysit your younger siblings.
