I wonder why the synopsis on the back of the book talks about Sasha and Bennie although the book was all about their past and only few events were mentioned their names in one chapter at the same time.

Kwesi, maybe because they are considered the central characters of the book, to whom everyone else is connected, or from whom everyone else can be traced. Did you notice, the book began with a chapter about Sasha, and ended with a chapter on Bennie, and Alex, who was with Sasha in the first chapter? :)

They were probably springboards for all the other characters. :)

You're always welcome, Monique. Just tell me which books you'd like me to pilfer for you. Haha.
A minor correction: Rob and Drew swam in the East River. It was Crispin Salvador who was found dead in the Hudson. :)

Actually, what I'd like you to teach me is
to do the pilfering. LOL.
Haha, see, I
I got the river all wrong! I apologize for my very limited geographical knowledge of New York City. :D
Funny though, that the
river located in NY that I know of should be the one where Crispin Salvador's body was found - the one mentioned in
, a favorite book. :P
