Everyone has Everything: It’s true!

I want to blog about this book – it had a neat plot (orphan parents are in car accident, leave their son (2 and a half) to newish friends, the newish friends are barren and so the child is like a trial run at being the parents they’ll never get to be) and some okay sentences, but I’m jet lagged and too sleepy to make much sense of things. So… let me say that neat plot aside, the book didn’t totally capture me. It is one of those Can lit submissions that’s trying so hard to be “serious fiction” that it reads like it’s yelling I AM SERIOUS FICTION and well, that’s just annoying. So yeah. Neat-o on plot front, but that’s not enough to hold this sleepy reader.

Note: I’m even too tired to find a picture!
