Disappointing

This book was a let down after reading Carlson's "Five Skies." It seemed the author pulled out all the tricks to make his characters interesting and poignant (small town kids with big dreams, painful family rifts that need healing, life-long friendships, illness, love gone wrong...) but it all ended up looking contrived and predictable. This is so unlike "Five Skies" where the characters really are interesting and poignant and the story is fresh and moving. Read that instead.
