5.0 out of 5 stars Trauma and family: as current as today., May 25, 2010
This review is from: The Lies We Told (Paperback)
I loved this book! Chamberlain never let's me down. I finally had to go to sleep after 125 pages but I didn't want to. The best part was being able to jump right back in the next morning. simmee reminded me of the Jodie Foster character in "Nel" in her simplicity, and in the setting, both eerie and claustrophobic and finally downright horrifying. How does the author draw such realism in the trauma settings, the chaos around which such skill is brought to bear. Seems to me I remember reading that Chsmberlain has some hospital experience in her background because she paints such clear pictures of the patients and the medical help they're given. When the boy has the asthma attack I could hear him gasping for air and feel the Dr's desperation to help. Maya and Rebecca's relationship as sisters rings so true: unquestionable love but underneath an inkling of jealousy that.sneaks it's ugly head out.

When I read for pleasure I don't try to figure out ahead of time what's happening next or a character's ulterior motive. And the autor never disappoints me. The twists and turns in this one kept me surprised and then re-surprised. All-in-all a great read.
