Read from September 18 to 30, 2012

I found that it took me an awfully long time to be drawn into this book. It wasn't until towards the end, when the character of the protagonists were revealed quite intensely, that I was finally gripped. The characters felt real with believable inner struggles. At the end, however, it would have been nice to know more....a sequel on the way perhaps? At any rate, it felt like an awkwardly abrupt drop-off. It's one of those books that I feel I really need to read again because I think I missed the point.

I also read "Table for Five", by Susan Wiggs with a similar premise (parents die in car accident, single child left to guardians). In comparison, "Everybody Has Everything" feels more real while "Table for Five" feels more like a made for TV fluffy feel-good movie. I much prefer Katrina Onstad's style over that of Susan Wiggs. I just wish that it would have had a better flow.
