Unfortunately, I found this book to be rather disappointing. The story was trite and predictable, with all of the actual action very far removed from the story. Confused flashbacks and nightmares just didn't provide enough drama or excitement for me. But this did turn a tough subject (child abuse) into a rather light-hearted and sweet book, which is perhaps why it felt so unbelievable to me. Though not a long book, it was slow moving, with characters that just weren't well-rounded enough to instill much caring in the reader. The shifts in P.O.V. were not smoothly transitioned, or consistent. The ending had some rather strange ramifications as well, leaving me quite unsatisfied. But, I did finish the book and I was impressed the way such a disturbing topic was transferred into a very not disturbing book.

Melissa Berman I agree! I was very disappointed that the characters were not very fleshed out and found the plot to be anticlimactic. The overall premise sounded good but parts seemed unbelievable.
