I almost put the book down because watching the parents cope with their daughter's death was almost too painful for me personally (having had to cope with death myself years ago). I am glad I stuck with it. I thought the character development was excellent--and the telling of how these dissimilar lives collide--the repercussions of someone's action on another and another and another--was seamless. Can't wait to read another book by Treadway. The narration was also excellent--I usually find the use of different narrators too distracting but it only added to the experience here. All were A+. Well done.

I typically enjoy books that are told from multiple perspectives as it often provides a layer of complexity that as a reader I find really gratifying. I especially love when it provides character development that is richer than it might otherwise be. Unfortunately, this book doesn't manage to achieve either one of those goals.
That's not to say it isn't an entertaining read, it is. But it is also sometimes tedious as it goes over and over the same material (told from different perspectives) without adding much to it. I found that really boring and I struggled to find the motivation to finish the book.
If you just want some entertainment this might do the trick, but there just wasn't enough here for me to give it a great review or recommendation.
