The book started out very interesting. I was excited to realize the book told the same story from three points of view. However, it did not keep my interested from beginning to end. The daughter's view was interesting. The mother's view was a little less interesting, but it still kept my attention. The brother's view was really boring and a bit redundant. I did not find much in his actions that made him a deeper character than he was in the first part of the book. There were a few new things that were new, but there was not enough to warrant the length of his story.
