The book was fine but I didn't like the story. This was a weird kind of love triangle. I didn't like Carl's or Reba's blatant lack of consideration of each other's feelings. The both acted selfishly. Joseph was admirable and Marisa was very wise to be so young.

A very well-written book with a storyline that will hold your interest as it unfolds. The characters are well developed and a surprising twist to the main character's life is unexpectedly revealed in a sobering way that creates compassion instead of judgment.
