the book is written from the viewponts of several people. there are no audible breaks between stories. she jumps from one character to the next without even a pause. confusing. content wouldn't make sense. I didn't realize she had changed characters. my mind would still be listening to Laura's story not realizing the story had switched to nicholes or jimmys story.
It has been said that we cannot focus ourselves on destroying an evil person without becoming somewhat like them. When teenaged Laura's vibrant, life-loving brother, only eleven years old, is killed by a homemade bomb, deliberately given him by a stranger while leaving a London subway, Laura vows to revenge him. She sets out on a bitter mission that obsesses her and alienates her from her worried friends. Caroline Cooney is a gifted story teller who extends suspense to a painful and masterfully-handled length that keeps you turning pages. The characterizations are compelling and the novel has a message that reminds me of a Shakespearean one. Can anyone, like Hamlet, revenge herself on an evildoer without becoming somewhat like him? Is the price worth it?
