I want to know what made Drake's father the way he was. In the first book he complain about also feeding the help (when Lacey was invited to dinner). Also the way he was with a Drake, but when his grandmother showed the taped of his parents receiving him from the adoption agency it was a completely different side of a Drake's father.
This answer contains spoilers… (view spoiler)[Hey TJ! First off, I'm so sorry for the late response on this. Please forgive me! But this is a great question and I'm glad you asked it. I don't get too deep into this in the book, but you're right. Drake's dad does act differently in the video than he does with Drake today, and there is definitely some behind the scenes story going on with that. This may seem surprising, but Mr. Drake actually wanted children just as much as Mrs. Drake did. He did need some convincing on Mrs. Drake's part to adopt, but that's because he couldn't let go of the fact that he couldn't have children biologically. When Drake actually came a switch went off in Mr. Drake. He really did want children and by the time the baby came the fact Drake wasn't his didn't matter. He wanted him just as much as Mrs. Drake did. But something did change and that's when Mrs. Drake was suddenly able to have children. Drake mentioned in The Space Between that after Adele came things changed and that's true. Mr. Drake suddenly resented the fact that he adopted and caused a rift between he and his adopted son. I hope that answers your question! And again, I apologize for the late response! (hide spoiler)]
