  • The only reason I'm able to give this book 2 stars is because I somehow managed to finish it.Imagine the cheesiest black & white crime movie with the most ridiculous similies available, add in all the overused "terrible childhood" plots (yes, all of them, together!), & then give it a nice big happy ending, & you've got this book.The beginning & end dragged forever, the middle was almost well-written and was actually interesting - just enough to make me feel like I had to reach th [...]

  • After a slow beginning, which was then interrupted by me reading My Sister's Keeper, I really enjoyed this.Until the end. I really didn't get it. It was almost like she got to a certain point and had to end it now, and so it just got finished off. I found it odd. There was what seemed like it should have been a key thing, that I totally did not get. I'm not silly, I'm sure, and yet, I didn't understand what it was meant to be about.I would probably read more by Alice Blanchard though, because de [...]


  • Well, I finished it. And it was ODD. It has some well-written parts at the beginning but just 3/4 of the way through it has dissolved into a pile of hot mess with no plausible way out. Sadly it continued in this vein til the last page



  • This is the second Alice Blanchard book that I have read. I enjoyed the story. I felt that there was good character development wrapped around a story with suspense and action.

  • #NCOwn in hardback.FS: "Daisy Hubbard headed down the hallway past the equipment room with its centrifuges and spectrophotometers and listened to the light, fast click of her own heels."LS: "Daisy inhaled the perfume of their bodies and pulled her family close while frozen threads of ice formed on the glass."


  • It's a pleasant (but a little cheesy) read. I found it a easy read. It's one of those books you enjoy reading but won't recommend to friends because it's not memorable at all. Also, I found myself predicting the plot.
