This story moved like a piece of a puzzle. Confusing at first, but piece by piece the reader finally gets the whole picture of why the puzzle was so important to the father.
Frannie's emotions bounce around from page to page. I felt the author did do a good job of showing the struggle Frannie felt when her father died and trying to make sense of it all. Her friend Jenna was a little too ditsy though. What friend really blows off someone who's father just died? I didn't believe it.
A fast paced read that is hard to put down. You can't help but want to follow Frannie as she discovers not only more about her beloved father but about herself as well.
