Sister Spider Knows All

I'm not sure what I was expecting out of this book but I really enjoyed it. It's a YA novel about a 12 year old girl who lives with her grandmother and cousin. She knows nothing about her mother other than she left when she was a few months old. Her cousin's new girlfriend encourages her to find out more and she discovers her mother's high school diary. There are many layers and a lot going on in the story but it's a great coming of age novel. Really enjoyed it. But it did make me feel a bit old since the girl's mother graduated high school in 1990, just a few years before I did.
