I wanted to like this book. The narrator was good, the premise was interesting. The problem is that the main character is not just unlikable, but impossible to understand. It's not that I disagree with what she did - she seemed to have no thought or guilt. I've read books with characters that were terrible people, but at least I could understand the motivation, and their behavior was rather consistent. In this, the mother is horrified that her son would steal from school, yet she doesn't seem to have any problems stealing from work. There was no guilt or shame shown, and yet previously she acted like she had a strong moral compass. For her to then explain how difficult it was that her husband had an affair, and then become a mistress herself - there was no real explanation of how she could get to that point. The character development wasn't there. Things that should have been a huge red flag she didn't give a passing thought. I guess, bottom line: her character was more unbelievable to me than something out of a sci-fi book. Too many problems to look past.

Everyone let Roz down, everyone and all she did was forgive them and keep adding more stress on herself.
Her sister was a self-absorbed bitch you needed to be told off. The ex husband needed to be taken to court and made to pay his fair share and his mother needed to be told off as well.
Poor Roz is so desperate to not lose the little she has left and does whatever she needs to in order to help and protect her son.
Scott is not who he pretends to be.
