I finished this yesterday and holy shit. I had heard of this case on a podcast, possibly Least of These, but I was not prepared. What a horrific case. What a horrific woman.

SRWCF Wasn't this just the most horrific thing ever?! 12h

I looked and looked at my salad trying to guess what it was. When it could not be avoided anymore, I took a bite and it WAS tuna fish, marshmallows, walnuts pimento (just for the pretty color our hostess told us latter when she gave us the recipe), and chunks of pure white lettuce and boiled dressing…the other ladies shrieked “delicious” and “heavenly” and “so different” (that I could go along with).

This was an interesting memoir. I was honestly surprised by how long ago it was written, because the author had a very modern, light, voice. But there were stunning moments of racism and domestic violence that were mentioned so casually that it was a little terrifying. So I couldn‘t begrudge anyone skipping this.

From the time she was a small girl,she wanted to be alone.The sound of other people's voices grated on her nerves.To interact with others who were Talmadge or Talmadge's father or sister,was torture to her.It subtracted days from her life.And so they walked;to find a place that would annihilate her,a place to be her home, and the home for her children.A place to show her children:and you belong to the earth, and the earth is hard.

This book deals with economic class disparities, racism, and homophobia. I think that's the real reason why it was banned in certain school systems. There is no pedophilia as some parents have argued, but yell that loud enough and it will upset everyone.

I liked the book. It reminded me of "Shameless" but with less addiction.

Christy2318 A mom I have been friends with for years was protesting this book at school board meetings and such. She unfriended me after I read it and posted my opinions about it and book banning on my own page. People be crazy. 1w

1. The next Miss Zukas mystery! I‘m currently reading the tagged, and I‘ve read the previous 5 back to back! They are fabulous! 6 more in the series 😊

2. No need for music - I quickly get immersed in the world created by the book.

This has got to be one of the most charming stories I‘ve read in a awhile. All of the characters, to include the octopus 🐙 really come alive on the page for the reader. It‘s also a story that will remain with you after the last page is read. #bookclubread #washingtonstate #readingtheunitedstates

marleed I thought so too. A completely different reading experiences, but when I was done I was left with the fells I experienced last year reading the noted. And that‘s a very good thing! 2w
KristiAhlers @marleed yes! I read that book also and was so charmed by all the characters and storyline! I love discovering reading gems like these. 2w
