    2. Boy did I want to shake Ginny! This book will really stir up emotions and it's good to give your daughters so they will be grateful for all you do as a good mother.I was talking to a young man on my job who said, "Grandmothers are in the clubs with their daughters because they thirty something and their daughters are twenty something. Everybody is looking for a man and no one is teaching the children left at home with baby sitters who are practicing how to become mothers at an early age just lik [...]

    4. I started this book last night with high hopes. This morning I figured I would finish it. I made it through chapter five, flipped to the epilogue and let the book go. As I read I felt like I was hopping from scene to scene and time to time. The hops weren't smooth. I was drug along, bounced around. For instance plans were made in one paragraph for something to happen on another day. In the next paragraph you found yourself in that day of plans. Sometimes I wasn't sure who was speaking. The story [...]

    5. This book had a very interesting story line. I liked the plot about the delicate relationship between a mother and daughter. I found that some of the activities of the mother toward the daughter were a bit far-fetched and unrealistic. The daughter's response to the mother was at times unrealistic and not very convincing. I struggled to get through the text as some of the language seemed not to be genuine. Many of the conversations between the characters in the story seemed disconnected. I found [...]

    6. Thanking God that I don't have a mother like Ginny. The main character in the book, Kendra, is trying desperately to get her life back on track after dropping out of college to only end up working at a dead end job. Kendra caught a couple of lucky breaks that put her life on that right track. Kendra's only problem is her mother Ginny. Ginny is a self absorbed person who feels like everyone, especially her daughter owes her everything she needs and wants.

    7. For the most part this book was just okay. I had a hard time getting past the mother, Jenny treating her only daughter so badly and how Jenny felt like her daughter, Kendra owed her something. Jenny was so used to everyone catering to her that she felt like everyone should provide for her, she didn't want to work. It was to much.

    8. Kendra Richards is a tormented soul with the favor of God upon her life. Like many of us, she has to make some conscientious choices about some people in her life. Those choices will either allow her to flourish, or solidify her demise. Although there were some typographical and grammatical errors in this book, I highly enjoyed it and do recommend it to lovers of the Christian Fiction genre.

    9. I enjoyed this book. Kendra sometimes got on my nerves bc she enabled her mother at the expense of herself. Even though I hope that nobody will expectations mother like Ginny, it's still the truth. The manipulation, need to control and be center of attention is overwhelming. Not to mention the side effects of neglect. Many won't understand, but so many will.

    10. This was one of the worst-written actually published books I've come across in a long time. I felt like I was reading somebody's badly put together creative writing class work. What can I say? It was available as an eBook at the library. >.<

    11. Ginny kind of reminded me of the rotten twin in "Whatever it Takes." Although I enjoyed the book and plan to read more from this author I hope the characters won't all be of similar demeanor from book to book.

    12. Good book and easy read. The story line between mother and daughter may have been over the top but people who have dealt with family dysfuntion can relate.

    13. Good story about how the ties a parent can have on you even when they mean you no good but your love for them make it hard to not let them mistreat and misuse you.
