As an internationally adoptive parent, the adolecent voices in "The Love Wife" ring with clarity and understanding. The use of multiple perspectives is a wonderful way to tell a story. Aas each character shares their story, and unique point of view, you feel part of the discussion. I love a book that broadens my world--Gish Jen is a master.
