In CAPE MAYBE, author Carol Fragale Brill does an excellent job of showing the effects of a parent's alcoholism on her child and on the extended family. Speaking in first person viewpoint, Katie reveals her chaotic life with an alcoholic mother from age 11 to young adulthood. But will she follow in her mother's footsteps or break the cycle of addiction that has plagued her family?
TEASER (from 2% on my Kindle):
Poppi always makes excuses for her and says she would be different if my father didn't die in Vietnam. I don't remember my father, but I miss him as if I do.
If I can't have a different mother, I want to be someone else, but only if I can still keep Poppi.
