I received a message on GoodReads from the publishing company, offering me an ARC of this book. It started out saying "I noticed that you enjoyed The Mothers by Brit Bennett, so I know you'll LOVE The Care and Feeding of Ravenously Hungry Girls by Anissa Gray (out 2/19)." Okay... I'm willing to give a book a try, but the ironic thing is I've never read anything by Brit Bennett. But, I don't count an enthusiastic PR person's mistake against the author, so agreed to read the ARC.

Families are complex, and the family in this particular case has more than its fair share of difficulties. Eldest sister Althea, and her husband are arrested for fraud. Like a stone thrown into the water, the repercussions ripple out for their daughters, Althea's siblings, and the community. Each individual caught in a ring has their own particular burden or view as well., often overlapping with that of another family member. It made for an interesting read, well plotted, with good characterizations. It was an intense read, and a commentary on so many aspects of our world today.

Thank you to the publisher for sending me this copy. I'll have to go read the book this one was compared to, to see if that holds true.

A BookCrossing friend is interested in this book, so I went back to Second State Coffee and retrieved it off the shelf. Luckily it was still there.
