The Stranger from Home (Unabridged)

A flimsy plot, unconvincing characters and immature writing style

I thought it would be good

I listen to books on my ipod as I drive so I may have missed bits. But I got to the end and thought this had so much potential but! If I had been reading this book I would have given up looked at the ending and thought it wasn't worth finishing. I was disappointed with the it, but like so many books the beginning and the middle is good and it runs out of steam for the end.
