I wasn't a huge fan of this volume. It was depressing and it seemed like it too everything it had built and then was outrageous just to be outrageous. There was a birthing scene and a lot more explicit content and drugs than before. All of this is fine, I understand that it is an adult series and there is bound to be some raunchiness but this was a bit overboard for me.

Hazel is still telling her parents story and she seems depressed about it in this volume. Her parents are working their way apart and it is wearing on the family. A majority of this volume was about their story - which I actually liked. The other story lines are good but don't hold my interest as much. I will keep reading but hope that the story's content calms back down a bit in the adult content.
