Interesting Family Drama with a Few Surprises,
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Raising Jake (Kindle Edition)
This was the second novel by this author that I read, and I have to admit I preferred the first (One Hit Wonder) but noticed similar characteristics. At first glance the story comes across as a typical coming of age or family based drama, but is actually full of surprising and entertaining side stories which I'm coming to realize is this author's style in general. The books makes for a great read with sweet and heartwarming family moments alternating with fantastic revelations. I marked it down to four stars because I felt it was a bit slow at times (I skimmed several times and didn't miss anything)and I felt that the character of the 17 year old teenager was too unbelievable--he spoke and acted like an 80 year old.
