Quite an interesting book and definitely different from most of what I read, this book centers around two sisters who are burying their parents and at the young ages of 15 and 12 are trying to keep up the appearances to avoid being separated. Their inquisitive neighbor enters the picture and provides another voice to the book with his own issues that he is trying to live with.

This book started out with such intensity and intrigue but quick
This book started out with such intensity and intrigue but quickly fizzled down. It did seem to pick up toward the end, however, there were some parts that were difficult for me to get through. I kept desperately trying to like it and get through it, and it took me putting it down for a few months and coming back to it to seem to be able to pick it up a little easier and continue on to finish it.
Once I got started again, it was a rather fast read.
I felt like the story moved from crisis to crisis, which maybe created just a tad too much drama for one book, that wasn't that long to begin
with. I did find difficulty in following some of the story and the importance of the characters mentioned. The book also is written from the
POV's of the three main characters, but I found the writing to be odd, as in who they were speaking to, sometimes I was uncertain.
I never did really understand the importance of the Jeffrey character that Lennie continually is "speaking to" throughout the story, other than
he was an important person to Lennie. It was difficult to read through as not really any of the characters were likable. Marnie was difficult
and temperamental and just out of control and Nellie was weird, odd, and quirky. Lennie was the only halfway normal and the author tried to
butcher that thought by part of the story line in the beginning. There didn't seem to be many good qualities about any of the characters that
would keep the reader feeling invested in their lives.
I found that the book started out by quickly drawing the reader in, but as quickly as I was drawn in, I was cast out by the slow-moving story.
I did feel that once I picked the book up again after a temporary hiatus, that the story moved along at a more comfortable pace and became
more interesting and worth reading. I seem to think that this book is one of those that either you like or you don't!
