Why people find this book appealing I don't know. What is so great about forming a group that excludes other people and stifles the development of these women beyond the age of 15? They are stuck in their roles in the group, and it causes their adult lives to be flawed. Why should I feel sorry for an alcoholic who beats her children just because she can't deal with the hard realities of life? I felt the author was trying to manipulate me, and ultimately I only felt sorry for the victims of the the Ya, Ya's sisterhood...namely, the children and the husbands who really seemed wonderful, but were taken for granted because the sisterhood came first. It's not the message I want to send my daughter.
