    I loved the references to Boise in the 1980s. I thought it was a realistic look at teenagers of the time. The three generations of women were interesting. The mothers' characters were my favorite too. It got my attention from the first line when the girl's mother puts the gun in her mouth. And I thought the other girl's mother was going to kill her when she.... Well, I don't want to spoil it.

    When I read the dustcover, I thought this would be a really interesting story. It could have been but never really followed through on some story lines. The location of the story is Boise, Idaho, early 1980s. Good mention of some sites here in Boise; made me wonder where the characters lived.

    This book was ok .....barely. It sort of droned on and on for me. I didn't ever really care about the two girls. I didn't even finish it. I liked the references to Boise locales though. Their mother's histories and reasons for doing things was more interesting than the girls.
