review ↠ eBook, ePUB or Kindle PDF Ó Beverly Donofrio Read Riding in Cars with Boys ☆ eBook, ePUB or Kindle PDF Denied college Beverly Donofrio lost interest in everything but riding around town in cars drinking and smoking and As part of a grad school psychology class I was reuired to analyze a movie from one of a variety of topics The movie version of this book was the option I chose I actually felt that the characters as portrayed in the movie were somewhat sympathetic It felt in the movies like Beverly was struggling but doing the best she could while seemingly stuck in adolescence There was some growth in the characterThe book was sadly not as compelling as the movie Yes many of the stories were the same but those that were left out of the movie gave a MUCH different feel for Beverly In the movie her involvement with drugs was through her ex husband s use her occasional experimentation and her attempts to make money to help raise her son foolish yes but using adolescent reasoning it wasn t unforgivable In the book one could see that this wasn t the extent of it at all In all honesty she wasn t struggling against things beyond her control due to a mistake she continually created those problemsI give it 3 stars because of the brutal honesty though I wonder how much she edited out to make herself look better and the thought that this is the better makes me shudder I didn t see much growth in her character even at the end I feel bad saying this because it is her life s story but it feels like a repeated telling of how she used and manipulated those around her including her child to get where she is Perhaps if I wasn t expecting something inspirational of this book I would have liked it But as a parent I just can t say that this is inspirational All I can think of is her poor child his is a story that might be a MUCH better read
