This book is a cavalcade of horrible men. From the father who treats his daughter horribly (there must have been a mix-up at the hospital and I got the wrong daughter) to the cheating boyfriend (you can't blame me, you were going around in sweatpants and no makeup) to the abusive husband (daddy has a gun and showed it to us!) to the psychotic, woman-hating serial killer (he loved the moment when he put the noose around her neck). It's just all too over the top. My favorite character was the protagonist's 70 year old mother who is trying new things two years after her husband's death. The most disturbing part of the story is the end where Paige's awful cousin gets in a serious bind. What!? Are we supposed to be glad this happened?! Nah.
