Two sisters discover what's truly worth living for in the new novel by the author of MARCELO IN THE REAL WORLD.TWO SISTERS: Kate is bound for Stanford and an M.D. -- if her family will let her go. Mary wants only to stay home and paint. When their loving but repressive father dies, they must figure out how to support themselves and their mother, who is in a permanent vegetative state, and how to get along in all their uneasy sisterhood.THREE YOUNG MEN: Then three men sway their lives: Kate's boyfriend Simon offers to marry her, providing much-needed stability. Mary is drawn to Marcos, though she fears his violent past. And Andy tempts Kate with more than romance, recognizing her ambition because it matches his own. ONE AGONIZING CHOICE: Kate and Mary each find new possibilities and darknesses in their sudden freedom. But it's Mama's life that might divide them for good -- the question of *if* she lives, and what's worth living for.IRISES is Francisco X. Stork's most provocative and courageous novel yet.

I didn’t like the two narrators. Maybe it was because I was listening to the audiobook over a long period of time but I had a hard time telling the two apart. It took me a few minutes into each chapter to figure out who was talking (and what her situation was). I did like that we got to see two diff...

I am not fond of this narrator. I'm not sure if that is the exact reason I'm dropping it or because the storyline is just not interesting. Either way I won't be attempting to finish this for awhile.
