it was ok

The beginning of Egan's novel quickly engages the reader and surpringsly connects you to the main character Phoebe, who in real life you may never notice. While I thought Egan did a good job of going back and forth in time with narrative, beautifully describing parts of Eurpoe and San Fransico and depicting the rough waters of adolescent in the shadow of a larger than life older sibling the story seems to fall apart midway through. The story takes on an almost forced turn with Phoebe's love story and the full story of how her sister ended up. It almost felt like there so many plot twists throw in because the author was uncertain on how to end the book. Not a bad read but not one I would highly recommend either.
