The Virtues of OxygenPer she manages to stay afloat with help from her family Then her mother suffers a stroke and Holly’s world begins to completely fall apart Vivian has lived an extraordinary life despite the fact that she has been confined to an iron lung since contracting polio as a child Her condition means she reuire. I would have most certainly given this book 5 stars 23 of the way through I was loving every moment But then it kind of fell apart at the end Holly's financial was resolved too uickly and easily her challenges just kind of disappeared but the most disappointing part was how Vivian chose to handle her situation I won't give it away but I was very surprised and not in a good way by how it all ended Nonetheless I enjoyed everything else about the book so much I only knock off one star for a weak endingReading a few of the reviews for it I have to take issue with those who say Holly's economic troubles did not ring true They were so right on it was like they were written right out of my journal when we went through a similar situation even up to shopping for our kids' Christmas in a used bookstore giving meaningful books we loved from childhood instead of the electronic gadgets we couldn't afford And like Holly's boys our kids thought those were the best presents ever and they have valued those books through the years Either the author has been through it or she researched it carefully with those who have because she perfectly portrayed what it's like to be living middle class in America with an income below the poverty line
