This is my first Delinsky book and I thought it was great. I mean, yeah, maybe she could have futher explored and developed the characters in the book. I thought that it'll be nice if she had talked more about David and Molly.
Nevertheless, I think the focus was on how the family coped, especially Molly. Personally, I know and do experience, the feelings of loving and hating your sister. It feels weird and I'll always feel guilty. Bottom line is, we actually love each other.
That's how Molly and Robin feels, it's just that certain things are left unsaid when you've got the opportunity to do so. When time runs out, what will you do? If something like this happens to me, hopefully not, I wish that by then I would have said what I really feel instead of regretting later. Also, I would like to be like Molly, the way she handles the situation is nice.
