Read in June, 2012

Too many of the characters and events in this book are just not believable. The supposed antique store doesn't even come in to it, except for Janet to impose on her friends to open it for her.

The teenage Josie seems more competent and responsible than the adult Janet, cooking meals and supposedly taking a semester off from high school to do inventory for Janet's business. No public high school I ever heard of operates in semesters or lets kids just take one off. Does this alleged business woman not have someone who could take inventory other than a child?

The foster parents supposedly just let Josie go with Janet, no questions asked. Really? They didn't wonder about human trafficking, didn't ask themselves if DCF might give them trouble for handing over a child for whom they are responsible to a total stranger?
