Sick and Tired: Part 1 (#5.1)
12 February 2014 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

Dorothy is very sick, so that she can't do anything anymore, but all the doctors keep on telling her that she is fine and it is just the age. She even goes to New York to a neurologist and he says the same. Dorothy is devastated just as Sophia. And Blanche wants to become a novel writer but has a writer's block before writing anything.

A pretty food scenario. And Sophia's speech at the end is so well done, one really feels for her. Also it makes one really wonder what is it that Dorothy has.

And Rose is bringing us lots of humor on her trip to New York, especially with her wonderings about King Kong.
