I just finished this book.  I enjoyed it but felt that there were two parts that were kind of "left hanging".  Well, after I finished it, I noticed it was an ARC (yes, I got it off this site off a shelf, not as an unpostable...I can't believe I didn't notice it when I got it but it teaches me to look at books more closely I guess)!  So now, I am wondering if those loose ends were tied up in the final copy.  If anyone has read it recently or even read it a while back and can answer my questions, I'd be grateful!  Oh yeah, I watched the movie too but it was quite a bit different than the book so that didn't help me at all.

1. What ever happened with the nightgown and robe that Carrie made?  It was mentioned  many times throughout the book but then she never wore it (at least in my copy).

2.  What was the deal with Kilroy and his parents?  I know his brother died of leukemia but it didn't explain what put the strain on his relationship with his parents.  I thought that was a big part of the story that was never explained.

Thanks in advance.  I hope someone can help me out!
