While he behaves like any other rational kid,he is convinced that he sees horrific things in his sleep. Being Terrified of water is one of the many things he is terrified about. Jane,bis worrisome mother tries her best to remain calm when he sprigs out of control.
Jane does not know if she would ever have a normal life unattached from her son. Noah constantly begs her to not leave with his babysitter or anyone besides her. Otherwise,he is crying out for another 'mother that he does not have.
Similar to Jodi Picoult storytelling,this is a remarkable slightly disturbing read. The beginning of this book started off pretty strong. Toward the conclusion,minor inconsistencies and poor characterization. Noah saved this rating,he was one stable but yet mentally challenged child.
I do plan to read more books by Guskin,although I didn't fully understand the plot....more

Constantly he mentors patients about opening up so they can reveal what they have been hiding all their life. However he cannot take his own advice, when his best friend Scottie Class shows up unannounced. Years ago has passed since the last time he saw him, before he was shot by his mother who murdered his father while his two brothers were wounded. Leaving the past behind, he is not willing to confront what happened the night his mother committed suicide.
Scottie wants to reflect back on that night, thinking that he would clues on what led to her demise. On the other hand, Cal does not want to remember that horrific night. Scottie will not go down without a fight, certain that he is going to find out the details of what transpired. Cal to his dismay grows more curious about what happened, then the two of them search clues on what happened. Meddling Scottie continues to be counseled by Cal but his erratic behavior leads to a police investigation.
This was a very hard novel to rate, it was not really a thriller. Usually I am very picky with novels that are labeled as thrillers, yet the one thing that saved the harsh rating was the characterization. Scottie was a sympathetic character who I really related too, all of the things that happened to him was very heartbreaking. I also love the dialogue between Cal and his patients, some of the patients were hilarious and empathetic.
I skimmed pages that was irrelevant or inconsistent, but I do plan on to read more novels by Palmer....more
Honestly I don't know why I even read this. I can careless about the Kardashians as it is,much less reading a book about them. Maybe I thought the conHonestly I don't know why I even read this. I can careless about the Kardashians as it is,much less reading a book about them. Maybe I thought the contents were going impress me? Not! The entire family is overexposed,they make a living being in the spotlight. Too bad they failed to entertain me,they are constantly in the media for drama or coverage only the bore care about.
Remind me why I decided to read this? Just boring and confirmed my reasons why I don't care for them in the first place.
Erin Edwards is a typical girl with crushes. Only that she only wants one boy,Nate Lawson. Not because he is extremely gorgeous or a bad reckless guyErin Edwards is a typical girl with crushes. Only that she only wants one boy,Nate Lawson. Not because he is extremely gorgeous or a bad reckless guy like the movies. Rather it is because he is unlike his friend Todd who is notorious for being a player. Previously she had a history with him,knowing that it led nowhere but a one night stand.
Nate is different from him,she likes the chase of him being not taken. Thus when he confirms her suspicions,she is drawn to him like a magnet and the two of them become inseparable.
Shifting the past to the present,Erin is engaged to a man she does not really love. Nate has been consuming her mind ,though it has been 23 years since the last time she laid eyes on him. Now she is stuck with an impending proposal and a choice between going with her heart or making amends with Nate. Desperately trying to repair the broken pieces,Erin must decide who is more important. Is it Nate her ex who left her or her current relationship? It seems like an impossible choice,and it only gets harder when she realizes Nate moved on. Told with brilliant consistency,this book took me by surprise!
I am a very picky rater,let me start of with that. Seldomly do I round books to fives,but what impressed me about this book was how relatable it was. Nostalgia waa apparent,it somehow reminded me of high school. Did it have perfect characterization? No. Was the story cheesy and unbelievable? You know it! So why the five? Cause I couldn't pull away from it,also the author did a terrific job comparing the Past to the Present. Furthermore,the ending was a beautiful cliffhanger,really hope there is a sequel!
Really good book,love it when books unexpectedly surprise me!...more

Although her mother Vivienne is present in her life,she is not there when she needs her the most. Rather she is busy romaning her latest Beau. However,she continues to keep tabs to Jane,much to her daughter dismay.
There is one person that Jane can turn to,Michael her imaginary friend. As an attentive listener, he is the only one who remains constant in her life. Yet Michael knows that his time with her is only temporary. Afterall,he is only sent for an assignment to deal with little kids,then he leaves never to see again. Still Jane does not want him to leave just yet ....If ever. Pressing through his conflicted thoughts,he leaves without a hopeful explanation.
Years later,Jane is grown and in a unstable relationship. Constantly her thoughts are consumed with Michael. Reality stings her when she sees him again,only this time he is real. Picking up the pieces where she left off is implausible,especially when Michael does not ecen understand how it is possible for her to remember him.
Michael is on another assignment,but Jane may not be the only one who he loses in this mermerizing novel of bliss and fantasy!
This is by far the best fantasy novel I read. Somewhat creepy,but the story was told beautifully. Michael felt so believable,he reminded me of Bruce Willis from the Sixth Sense. The title of this book reminded me of a movie that I may or may have not seen.
I don't know why it took me this long to discover James Patterson,very gifted storyteller!
