    The lesson learned from this book is things aren't what they seem. Could Sunny have more problems- strange astronaut husband- autistic child- and a mother in a coma? Yet she seemed to be able to handle anything that came her way. Once she began to wear a wig to deny her baldness, she built a world that seemed normal. An accident tore the wig from her head anther facade crumbled and she faced her true self.
    The premise of the novel is intriguing but I was confused by the flashbacks and wished the ending had been clearer and morer conclusive.

    Couldn't figure out this book at all. Thought about rereading it to see if I had missed something that others seemed to see, but decided not to put myself through it again. Didn't like any of the characters and wasn't interested in their lives. I was very surprised, as I was looking forward to this book. Sorry, folks.
