really liked it

This book, upon finishing, is really making me think. Initially I felt it a bit complicated. By complicated, I mean there was a lot of criss-crossing story lines and I became worried about resolutions of convenience and dangling improbabilities...but...Holz really created a strong story, layered with real life in all its ugly glory. More thinking on this will continue and I hope to add to this review,

Cindy whoa.

Jennifer Right? It was really interesting - the author managed to pull it all together without being cliché.
