Wow! This neighborhood is crazy. The single mother of two is shunned by all the women because she's divorced. This book contains the subjects of bullying, theft, abandonment,underage sex and much more. The only likeable character is baby James. By the end most of the people have redeemed themselves somewhat. One chapter that involves mostly teenage boys has a lot of F- bombs. OK book but certainly not a feel good book until the last few chapters.
