Disappointed in the book completely. There was no redeeming value to it. There might be a reason to write @ being a "replacement child" but the one presented here isn't it. Quite boring and ccouldnt wait to skim thru and get it over with.

Replacement Child by Judy Mandel discusses an interesting concept that I wasn't previously aware of: replacing a dead child with a newly birthed or adopted one. That's right.  Judy Mandel's family, before she was born, suffered from a tragedy.  An airplane crashed into their home, killing Judy's older sister while severely burning her other sister Linda. Judy was birthed as a replacement child for Linda. The story sounds compelling, and in actuality, it is a compelling tale.  However, there were three story lines to follow: 1. The day of the crash (compelling) 2. Judy's life growing up (interesting) 3. Judy's day as she is writing this memoir (not sure why that's included, it took away from the story) The story itself is intriguing, sad, and amazing.  Yet, I don't think it was told that way. I spoke to my mom about the story, and she said she grew up with someone who was the replacement child.  It was totally new to me. Do you know of this occurring? Thanks for reading, Rebecca @ Love at First Book
