Cutting Teeth by Julia Fierro. A paranoid woman, a lesbian couple, a browbeaten dad, an upwardly mobile troublemaker, and a foreign nanny separated from her children endure a weekend of painful truths and broken friendships during a getaway at a shabby beach house.
This was an incredibly well written book. The writing style will challenge the more casual reader, but as an avid reader, I found this book to be a great read. At once it's intelligent, tragic and hilarious.
