Creative entertaining but story line a bit too contrived and wrapped up all nice and tidy. At the end my sympathies lay with the younger children who were masterfully narrated as well as poor Mia.
Complicated family, good story.
Love this author. A great story of questioning how truly well we know ourselves and the ones around us. Great narration too.
Beautifully written. Jewell has two distinctive styles that are very different - the psychological suspense and, as this one is, the sensitive observation of complex relationships, high she does with both honesty and tenderness. She always manages to strike the right tone of dialogue, no matter the age or gender, which is such a skill. She never makes children saccharine sweet, but deep and authentic. An accolade too for the narrator, who captures the many different characters so naturally.
Narrator was amazing! Another great story by Lisa Jewell. I'm hooked. On to the next one!
The narrator was great. The story wasn’t much of a thriller or mystery, more of a story about a dysfunctional family.
