I don't know what half of the foods in this book are, but a lot of them sound delicious! This book made me hungry. Good story, too.
The foster care system can be a troubling place for a young child, and many of them come out scarred and unable to have positive relationships. This book is written by a girl who was tossed around the system and endured many years of abuse, but came out okay. She is now an advocate for children in foster care. I would recommend this book to anyone interested in fostering or adopting a child who has been in the system.
I expected to like this book about a troubled mother/daughter relationship, and even though it touched on subjects that I usually like to read about, I couldn't get into it. It moved too slowly for me, but I finished it hoping for an interesting ending. I was disappointed.
I thought there were a lot of plot holes in this movie. It was boring and the acting was terrible. I have liked Anna Paquin and Mark Ruffalo in other things, but this film was a waste of time.
... then you will probably like this movie. Created by Lena Dunham (as is girls), the comedy is dark and slightly painful. I really enjoyed knowing that Lena's mother and sister in the film are her actual mother and sister. That was the best part.
