The Care and Feeding of Ravenously Hungry Girls-Anissa Gray
This book was jam packed with emotion. Talk about a complicated family life.
What struck me was the fact that the family members still tried to have relationships with each other even though their past wounds had formed and shaped them, teaching them to deal with life in a variety of unhealthy ways. The book is uncomfortable to read at times, and I had the feeling I was eavesdropping on intensely personal moments have a family in crisis. At the same time I found it difficult to put the book down. It’s one of those books that makes you examine your own family history, and either be grateful you survived, or grateful you didn’t experience certain situations. Possibly both.
The characters in this book had tremendous depth.
This is a novel that explores various issues that could be triggering for some people.
