Looking for Salvation at the Dairy Queen by Susan Gregg Gilmore

Looking for Salvation at the Dairy Queen
by Suans Gregg Gilmore

A great story presented with little writing ability.... It is written as she thinks it would sound good, rather than in the voice of the story teller.  The voice continually changes and, even when told in the first person, there is a detachment from it.   The story teller has to be there - it's a great story --- it was just painful to read.

The story is emotional.  It is the coming of age novel that will die in lost confusion because characters to care about where never created.  The story is shallow, but with characters of substance, it could have been enjoyable.

I'll past on her other works.  I hope she finds and editor that forces her to develop her characters and end the excessively long and tedious sentences written in single syllables when ever possible.

Such a disappointment.
