it was amazing

I don't usually like legal type books, but this one was an exception. I could not wait to see what happened from the very beginning. I will admit, when I thought the story was beginning to resolve itself, I was a little annoyed--I thought the author was being lazy (and, had it ended there, I would have given it three stars). But then, within just a few paragraphs, everything changed again and the story continued to be uphill, down, and back up until the very last page. Like what seems to be a common refrain from me: if you have an aversion to bad things happening to children, I'd stay away. But, if not, this is a fabulous, edge of your seat, non-pandering read.
