The deep end of the ocean is where I wanted to throw this book when I finished it. It's unbelievably melodramatic...Ms. Mitchard missed several key points. First, the mother is unsympathetic because she just wallows in her grief instead of trying to help her other children deal with the loss of a sibling. It's like the writer assumed that since she lost a child, the mother must be sympathetic. Instead, she's merely pathetic. Then there was Kerry's age. Also, I found the racial slurs offensive. Not to mention the number of typos.

Very Good book, lots of twists and turns that draw you in and tug at your emotions as you read. You feel for each character as you see different perspectives on the disappearance of young Ben Cappadora.

I could only imagine how this woman felt and how this family dealt with their circumstances. It seemed so real. The author took you there. She did a great job.

I enjoyed this book. It brought you into the emotions that only a mother who has lost a child can feel. I thought Mitchard did a fine job of taking you there.
