Home And Children (Book Thoughts: If You Lived Here, You’d Be Home By Now, Claire Lazebnik)

I confess I started reading this book because I liked the title: “If You Lived Here, You’d Be Home By Now.” Plus, I liked a previous novel of Claire Lazebnik. This is a story of a young mother raising her child while also living at her parent’s house. And…there really is nothing else happening. i must confess I found the book very slow and once things started to happen, the book was already ending. But, Lazebnik is good at giving her characters very distinct voices, and even if the main character, Rickie can be a trying one, I felt myself connecting and empathizing with her, making this book marginally enjoyable.
