Millie is a child, mucking about in the mall, as you slowly realized her mom is never going to come back for her, but she ends up striking up a friendship with a creepy old man and her equally disturbed neighbor, and they go on a cross country trip to find her mother. The characters are all horrifying people in their own way, but together they cause so much trouble that it is jarring to read. Overall, this was a book that was meant to be about characters, but the plot didn’t make enough sense to allow for the necessary expression of the various neuroses and psychotic tendencies of the three main characters, and it fell flat. The language was mediocre, the scene changes were jarring, and it lacked emotional resonance.
