really liked it
bookshelves: drama, young-adult

A friend passed this book along to me thinking I would like it. She was right. I really did like it.
I tend to not read much LDS fiction because it always seems too convenient, but I liked this book for the story of a sister and her much older brother. It was very reflective of my own experience, so I had a lump in my throat several times throughout the book.

One problem I had a hard time getting past was that Kathy's mother was so against her son's mormon friend. I kept waiting to find out the big reason why and really felt like there just wasn't one. Her reaction was so visceral that I felt like the cause was missing. Not very plausible to me on that. I figured it would be a case of some horrible experience with someone similar to (already forgot the character's name) Kathy's rival. This girl was horrible and also LDS. Nasty people are usually the reason behind a visceral reaction.
