I got this book for free through First Reads. I loved the story and the characters, although it was difficult at times to know who the narrator was. The way the story was written, it was from the perspective of 3 different lead characters whose point of view would carry for a chapter or 2 at times. The only problem was that, at the beginning of the chapter, the reader had to figure out by context who the narrator was. Although that could be frustrating at times, I wonder if knowing who the narrator was in the beginning would have changed the story and the flow. I liked how the story unfolded as it went along rather than getting all the information in the beginning. Key points were left out until the middle and end which tied the whole story together, but it worked and definitely made the story more interesting. It was a great read!
