All About Mia felt incredibly slow, but I liked the insight into Mia's unappreciated, middle child's feelings. I didn't like Mia but her insecurity about the future and living up to her sister(s) is definitely relatable. She is rather self-destructive and when she's not consumed with herself, she can be alright. Her friends seemed to put up with her for some reason. Also, it's really cute how much Mia's parents love each other.

Let me add with the way Mia (illegally) drank so much alcohol, she needed to be in A.A pronto. ( )

Mia is the middle child, sandwiched between an impeccable older sister and Olympic-bound swimming younger sister. All Mia is good at is partying and having a good time, and is hyper-aware of her shortcomings when compared to her siblings. Until one day her older sister comes home from a trip abroad toting her new boyfriend and an unexpected pregnancy. Instead of disappointment, Mia's parents are overjoyed, leaving Mia to feel even more despaired.

Throughout the book, Mia continually acts out, getting wasted and creating embarrassing and dangerous situations. She's a train wreck for the vast majority of the book. Then, in the last 40 pages, Mia helps in her sister's delivery and is suddenly changed. She sees the error of her ways and vows to change. This change of heart is too little too late and feels unrealistic, to say the least. There is nothing profound or moving in this piece. Not recommended. ( )
