Fitch's well-received first novel parallels the success of other contemporary titles dealing with mother/daughter relationships. Mona Simpson's Anywhere But Here has received a high profile because of its movie adaptation. Another child wiser than her parent, Ann is dragged along from Wisconsin to Los Angeles by her mother, Adele, who continually lives in a fantasy world of her own making. Sharon Creech's Walk Two Moons, the Newbery winner for young adult literature, also depicts a child picking up the pieces of her life that is dictated by her mother's self-centered, whimsical ways. Rebecca Wells provides another view of mother-daughter relationships in a wealthy Southern family in Divine Secrets of the Ya-Ya Sisterhood. Sidda and Vivi, daughter and mother, also discover that the truth of their past is somewhere between what the two of them recall and portray for others.
