I'm compelled to write because I found the character of Drew almost unbearable in her unyielding judgement about everyone and everything-including her daughter Shay. The story is positioned as a thriller, but it's so formulaic that I had already figured out the culprit at a third of the way through, and then had to suffer to the end out of respect to the writer.
I can certainly complement Ms. Sissel as she drew exposition that was real to life with personalities that were authentic. However, the effort to complete the book wasn't outweighed with satisfaction.
The narrator was more than competent and used just the right whiny, sniveling tone with Drew-making me dislike her even more!
These two mothers did not work together to save their children, as the details state. I guessed the "bad guy" the moment he was introduced to the story. The character, Edward, was of no consequence to the story at all. The notion that real-life adults keep these kind of secrets is nonsense...it was like a mediocre Hallmark made for tv movie. But if you like that sort of thing, then this book is for you.
