LA Weather by Maria Amparo Escando: Book Review

LA Weather  by Maria Amparo Overview: Oscar is obsessed with the weather. It rules his mood and all his days, and his family doesn't understand why. They don't know about the secret crop that is dying in the sun miles away. Keila is a successful sculpture, but her dissatisfaction with Oscar and her marriage is leaving her with little inspiration. Their three daughters are all plagued by individual issues and secretly crumbling marriages as well. Over the course of 2016, the family navigates soap opera level disaster after disaster. Overall: 3 Characters: 3 I really struggled with these characters. I just had a hard time finding much attachment to any of them.
