Review: A Slipping-Down LifeUser Review - Alora - Goodreads
Don't waste your time. The book has no plot and the characters have no personalities. It is depressing and the ending is depressing. One of the most pointless books I've ever read. The only reason I finished it was for my book discussion. Read full review
