My all-time favorite book... I've read it three times, and it never gets old. By describing three generations of women, from Buggy to Vivi to Sidda, Wells creates a picture of the complicated mother-daughter dynamic, giving background glimpses to help us understand what makes them tick. Vivi especially is a character of depth - she makes me love her one minute and hate her the next, a pattern that adds to her authenticity. And oh, the Ya-Ya's. This is a group of girls who defy the common definition of "family," proving that the bond between friends can be the most powerful thing in the world.
