The character development is good and the plot keeps you interested.
The book really just doesn't go anywhere, I ended it with so many questions and unaddressed hopes for the family that it just annoyed me.
Speaking of contrived, there are far too many coincidences near the end of the book, especially in Kiwi's story line.
Good read but, for me, not a great ending. Left me with a little bit of a Charlie Brown feeling: where are the grown ups? But wonderful use of language!Published 1 day ago by Washington State traveler

This is an engaging novel. The actions of the children were a little fantastical and one wonders why child protective services were not called. Overall I enjoyed it.Published 8 days ago by Nancy Shinno
I agree that the book is just good, but not great, and it flounders and flags, particularly when it's not focused on Kiwi. Read morePublished 19 days ago by Candace N. Smith
A bit of a disappointment especially after all the accolades. It just fell short. I agree with many of the other 3 star reviewers. It's all been said here.Published 1 month ago by T. Evans

So overrated. The writing is rich. At times, the book is really funny. But in the end--ugh! What a terrible, contrived, silly, disappointing ending. Read morePublished 1 month ago by seamusthecat
