I thought this book was just okay. It started off faster and then just got slower and slower for me from then on. I felt like there wasn't any giant climax. Sure the Dad comitted suicide but we knew that from reading the back of the book. I also thought it was strange how Kate seemed to go from speaking from a child's perspective to an adults within a chapter. Kate and Davey seemed much more mature than 6 year olds as well. They didn't seem young enough or something. On a postivie note, I the writing was good. I just feel like the entire book lacked something and I was not left wanting more at the end or asking questions, I just wanted to be done with it.
