My opinion: I wasn’t sure about this one at first. It is kind of a slow start and I didn’t connect with the characters very quickly. It gets stronger as you go, though, and becomes a solidly entertaining read. The various format styles helped considerably, keeping the character perspectives clear. It was interesting how their various traumas came to light and affected their choices. Somewhat predictable but still worth a read.
