I am still reading this book and wanted to write a comment as I am so enjoying it.

Great read. Believable quirky characters. Author Lianne Moriarty has her characters cope with important issues such as post natal depression and aging in a believable real way. Interesting plot and setting.

I laughed out loud at the 3 women in their colourful clothing tearing round the island on their scooters. The character who collects her friends dirty washing and returns it clean and folded in a quiet unassuming way.

I love the way the author draws you into her characters uncensored thoughts about themselves and others on the island; and how these characters deal with their situations.... the mother who steps away from her baby to slap herself; the pain is ' exquisite' then she gathers herself and pastes on a smile in the hallway then back to the baby to continue on with her responsibilities like all good women and 'good mothers'

I am waiting to learn the mystery of the disappearing parents and have my theories as to what has happened.

Looking forward to reading more of this author's work.

I love, love, love Liane Moriarty's books. While I would say that this one wasn't my absolute favourite, I do love the little twist at the end and the characters were enjoyable!

I found it difficult to gather what was going on, too many characters introduced before the
plot got underway....mysterious yet amusing...none of the characters stood out for me

Lovely story of two sisters and their progeny, living with the mystery of a couple who disappeared and the infant they left behind. Although this sounds ominous, most of the story is far from it. The book is delightful, well-written, and a good read.

This book is tough to review. It was not what I expected. I went into the book thinking it would be a light, fun read but it is not. But this is definitely not a bad thing. I felt that the parts of the story that touched on the very serious issue of post-partum depression were convincing and felt very real. I grew attached to the interesting and dysfunctional family that the book focuses on. I ended up guessing the main mystery, but I loved the unexpected twist at the end that seemingly came out of nowhere. Overall, this was a pretty great read by one of my favourite authors.

Really enjoyed this book and loved the characters - was kind of sad when I reached the last chapter as I wanted to see what happens next with the Scribbly Gum residents.

Another good book by Moriarty. A step up from her previous, this one shows how she began moving toward adding "issues" to her novels. Here we have postpartum depression, a disorder often trivialized or discredited outright. I also liked the mystery, the characters and the blossoming of Veronika, Margie and especially Rose.

Another good book from Ms. Moriarty. This one is laugh out funny.
