it was ok

I had to drop this book. I know that most of my flist was totally excited about it, in love with it, giving it four stars, even five, but for me, this book just didn't... click, I guess. The characters were cute, that's true. But the setting... It was so unrealistic that I just couldn't get over it. I mean, I just can't see anybody letting Dill take care of seven boys in a run-down house when he has to literally beg for food in restaurants, he has no income, the boys don't go to school, they don't receive the psychological help they need... No matter how good-hearted Dillon is, this was a major hurdle for me that I just couldn't cross. Maybe if the author let the story take place in a post-apocalyptic world, where there weren't Social Services or schools, I could've accepted that. But in this case, I just couldn't take it at face value.
