A very good story about two sisters. One a famous TV personality and the other a social worker who works with inner city problems in the poor ghettos of New York city.
Was not impressed with the use of bad language though.

I really enjoyed this novel. The contrast between the two sisters was sharp, but benign and loving. The view of a media star's exposure to the public reads true. The life of the wealthy, it's isolation, also reads true. There is forgiveness available between the sisters and redeems them. Full understanding of the other is impossible, but acceptable. And there is humor!

decent book. very descriptive, but the characters feel manufactured. halfway through i still didn't know what the point of the novel was, but it all comes together in the end. i'd recommend if you're going on vacation or just want to have a lazy read during the weekend.
