I understand from many reviews that the first part of this book is horrible (and I whole heartedly agree), but the last part of the book is so worth the effort. Meh. Existential crises over flower arrangements, profoundly delusion ideas about parenting, and the mind-boggling avoidance of simple sex education is not worth any more of my time. The author wrote pretty, however.
