It's been one year since the car accident that killed her boyfriend left her scarred and shaken. Flanked by an eccentric posse of friends, she is serving out a self-imposed sentence at a halfway house, while trying to finish cosmetology school. Amid the rampant diagnoses, over-medication, compulsive eating, and acrylic nails of Los Angeles, Bebe looks for something to believe in before something--her past, the dangerously magnetic men in her life, her own bad choices--knocks her off course again.

What a life Bebe lives.
This book is like an onion with many layers. Each intricate and part of what develops the story is all the intricacies.
I liked it, but am still feeling the impact, so am unclear whether I loved it.
I did think it very clever, but sometimes all over the place too.
I will say, Bebe, has the crappiest luck in the men department, and will make any woman feel better about herself. Sounds a tad harsh, but I don't mean that as a bad thing. She is a fictional character after all. Why can't her drama give us readers a boost?!
Recommend? Definitely, yes!
