An amazing story about 4 sets of sisters, & a group of amazing men who keep college friendship going far into adulthood when they have each become scarred, with one of them gone. And adult women who have made mistakes, but who long for healing family relationships, & make them happen. Some of the story is told through the eyes of a 14-year-old girl who is a genius but has serious behavioral problems. And we read of a dead girl who haunts a campus, who actually inspires & uplifts the living. And a mean old rich lady who makes a big u-turn for the better! I don't get geometry, but I loved this book & want to read more by Luanne Rice. Her writing is filled with imagery, irony, passion, pain, humor & satisfaction! If you love the sea, lakes, lighthouses, bridges or private schools, you'll love this book!
Luanne Rice knows how to show interaction between sisters bringing out the best and worst in them. This
was a great read and one you can almost apply to yourself if you have sister. Couldn't wait to see what
happens in the sequel.
This was a fast read because it just sucked you right in! Every character had a drama going on (which was a bit much) and the two characters mended their relationship MUCH too easily. Other than that I completely enjoyed it. Movin' on to the second book - Deep Blue Sea for Beginners which picks up the story of one of the side characters from this book.
