A great read from the first to the very last page. The rich charcters and attention to detail will reach out and touch you. I felt as much a part of the story as the characters themselves.

A great novel by a talented writer. A definite must read for lovers of YA and adult fiction as the story tells the tale of two siblings, a 17-year-boy and a 37-year-old girl, dealing with a family tragedy and their own identities. Wonderful character development. Deep, realistic, honest. Great job!
