Nineteen-year-old Virginia is married to a man who seems to have forgotten she exists. Although she has a daughter she adores, Virginia's life is not turning out the way she thought it would. When her husband, Buddy isn't at work, he's usually hanging out with his high school sweetheart, Irene.
Virginia is very superstitious; this, combined with the funny and endearing way she sees the world, makes her an immensely likable (if a bit ridiculous) protagonist. She's funny in the way your mother or grandmother is funny--she has no idea what you think is so funny.
This is a fun little book, and one that will stay with you.
