Enjoyed this book for most part. It is YA and it definitely feels it. Sometimes with YA, you can't tell but this one you can. The mystery part is not as mysterious as I thought it would be. Had most of it figured out about halfway through the book, which is not usual for me. Yet the story kept me enthralled with the exceptional family drama and the great characters. Good story just don't expect to be wowed.
Book 277 towards my goal of 280! 4/5 stars for this YA Family Drama! A really interesting family story. Great characters. Great narration. Some of those twists and turns tho ðð definitely recommend if you've enjoyed her other books.
