- Momentary Mother
on March 25, 2012
There's a lot I enjoyed about this book such as the quirky appearance of the high priestess, Lulu's ability to read tarot cards, and the author's success at conveying the different personalities of each character.Lulu is a likable heroine who puts up with a lot of toxic BS from her dysfunctional family. The dialog is intense and reminded me of a staged play. Jumping between the September and March action works well and wasn't confusing.
