The story is bringing up very difficult themes to talk about such as domestic violence, bullying and human trafficking. It is spiced up with a good humour though. Nevertheless the whole book felt like another chapter of ‘desperate housewives’ without much happening till almost the end of the book. I was waiting for a twist or something mysterious but it didn’t happen.. The book has a good merit to rise awareness of domestic violence, However, it’s unlikely I will re-read this book again as I accidentally skipped chapters 41-46 without noticing till much later but It didn’t feel I missed something significant in the story. It had a taste of chewing gum .. just a bit.
