Most depressing book, ever!

I really liked this book until the ending. It was suspenseful, had interesting characters, a group of chilhood misfits who became great friends. The ending was just horrible and ruined the book for me. I also hated the Beth character, no one is that naive. It could have ended differently and been a really good book.

I couldn't put this book down. I happen to like the way its written, different characters flashing back to their childhood, reliving their memories. Its well written and I'm not afraid to admit, brought tears to my eyes a couple times, can't wait to read the next book in the series.

When I see a book with more than 300 pages I get excited, hoping to really get a good and fullfilled story. I also know that major publishers wont accept a book that long, so it must be an independent. This dosn't mean right off that the book will be bad, every author has to start somewhere. In this case though 900 pages could easily be cut down to 200. There are nine main characters, all of which had horrible, abusive childhoods. I find this absolutely unbelievable. The story has constant drawn-out flashbacks to childhood. The overview states that the characters will fight against childhood bullies, but the drama only happens in the last 15 pages and is weak at that. You would expect some kind of group plan to put the bullies in their place. Not so, and the final wrap-up wasn't even written into the story. It was refreshing that there were only a handful of editing errors, mostly a missing or repeated word. There was one thing though, one character's family sometimes had eight, other times had nine children.
