** spoiler alert ** I quite liked this book. Some of the unanswered questions - "Why didn't Ruth begin to read Alek's/others' minds?" - make it a bit vague by the end of it. Why didn't Giordana's invisibility come into effect again through the story? Maybe I missed something in the vital last chapter that undid all of this. We know Peter never gains his powers because of the changes Alek makes, but I'm not sure if it ever ponders on the others. Ruth is the big one because she has the power to unravel everyone else's secrets in a flash but... it's kind of just left there. Does she know Alek can change all this?

It's a really nice book though. I was a bit blasé at the beginning just because, look, another story about a broken family, how boring. But it takes the turns it needs to make and picks up after that segment. A worthy read.
