    This was what I would call realistic fiction. I don't remember why I initially made the decision to read it, but it must have been recommended to me on a reading list at some point. And I am glad I read it.

    The story is sad--and it ends rather sadly. Again, while realistic, it does not resolve like I would like it to. I sometimes have a love-hate relationship with realistic fiction. And this is probably one of those instances.

    I found myself going to bed each night thanking God for the wonderful family I have and everything for which I have to be thankful. I am a teacher, and I have taught students in the past who have gone through situations like the book describes. I had never considered how a family murder can continue to affect children throughout their lives.

    In the end, I would have liked the two sisters to have truly resolved their issues, but then again, I guess it is pretty common that people don't. I loved that the author acknowledged at the end that she had worked with people for ten years in the situations described in this book.

    The characters at times seemed 2-dimensional, and I got tired of the foul language and the more intimate sex scenes. I probably enjoyed the first part of the book better than the other two. Although the author throws us a curve or two in Parts 2 and 3 that are worth reading.

    All things considered, I liked the book more than I disliked it. Thus, my 3-star rating.

    Nice quick read!

    I thought this was a great little read. The writing wasnt juvenile but not superb either. I like that readers get both Merry and LuLu's perspective but I wish she would have fleshed out the fathers character a little more. Pretty easy read if you're looking for something quick and interesting.

    Good but lost its steam...

    I enjoyed the first half of the book but the conflict between the sisters got a bit old in end. I wanted to yell ENOUGH ALREADY! Overall I would rate this book a '7'.

    Finally finished!

    Quick read that started off good, but lost it's punch midway. Will not recommend this book to anyone over 18.
