** spoiler alert ** I like LaVyle Spencer in general, but I don't think this was her best book. It wasn't bad....an inteesting read. But it wasn't a great book either. The characters were for the most part likeable, if a bit unrealistic. The whole situation though, was a bit unrealistic. I mean, what are the chances that off all the schools in the US, you would move into the one at which your bio dad whom you never knew would be the principal? And really, would you leave your kid in that school. I mean, the mom obviously had money.....there are no private schools around?

But forgetting all that, because there would be no story if you didn't...it was entertaining, but a bit drawn out at times. No doubt Claire would be upset. But it seemed to take way to long to reach the conclusion you knew would come....that she would forgive and restore her family. And then, when she did....it came WAY too easily. Like BOOM.....I'm enlightened and all is well. After enduring chapters of her harshness and how the rest of the family coped, it just seemed like it should have taken a couple of chapters for her to think about what Monica said. And the most puzzling part was the last sentence. What was that about her 'liking' Monica. Was that a hint that Monica would become a good friend and part of the family? Or was that a threat.....Tom, I'm going to keep you on edge with this forever.

An interesting story, but maybe don't bump it to your 'must read' list.
