This is the second book about Lake Henry residents and it is just as good as the first, Lake News. I really enjoy Barbara Delinsky's books, her characters are very well developed and feel like friends by the end of the book. Highly recommend both titles.

I thought this book had a lot of twists and turns. Some of what happened was a bit far-fetched but overall it was very thought provoking and an interesting read. The whole situation with the teenage daughter was very well written, totally believable and scary for those who have kids. I didn't like how that portion ended though, no consequences for the daughter or the guy involved. I would have called the cops and had that loser arrested!!
Will definitely look for more books by this author.

I have never written a review here before but felt compelled after reading this book. My mother is 77 years old and has had Alzheimer's for about 3 years. While she did not have early-onset like the main character, Alice, I felt like I was reading about my mother's life in this book. Many of the things that happened to Alice also happened to my mother and our family. It was very true to life and is heartbreaking and terrifying to read about Alice's continued decline throughout the book. I did learn a lot, however, and will pass this book along to my brothers. I was a bit afraid to read this book because of my situation, but I'm glad I did. Everyone should read this to gain a better understanding of this terrible disease and those who suffer from it.
