    This review has been hidden because it contains spoilers To view it, click here I thought the book was a bit boring The author tried to create some drama at the beginning by leaving out who had been killed the night at the house, allowing the reader to assume that it was Maggie s mother who had been killed, but I saw the twist that she was actually alive coming a mile away The author failed to create any depth in her characters so it was hard to connect with them and be invested in their story and their relationships.

    When my friend sent me this book I was really excited to start on it despite the fact that it took me a while to get around to it and for the most part, I wasn t disappointed At the time of writing this review I m waffling between 3 stars and 4 stars, so overall it was a great experience I liked having the three points of view in this story Maggie, the daughter, who at five years old witnessed her mother kill a student in self defense Grace, who was one of the students there that night, and When my friend sent me this book I was really excited to start on it despite the fact that it took me a while to get around to it and for the most part, I wasn t disappointed At the time of writing this review I m waffling between 3 stars and 4 stars, so overall it was a great experience I liked having the three points of view in this story Maggie, the daughter, who at five years old witnessed her mother kill a student in self defense Grace, who was one of the students there that night, and who later comes back to teach Maggie s geometry class and Emma, the mother I would have liked to see a bitcharacterization of Maggie, because I feel like out of all of them she s the most innocent since it s hardly fair to blame a five year old for being too scared to talk to the cops about murder and her part was the most compelling to me I definitely felt the most sympathy for her just by default, so I wanted to knowabout her outside of the stereotypical high school girl And honestly I felt very little sympathy for Grace and for Emma when they were introduced they were well rounded and realistic characters, but I thought they were both selfish and I hated the way Emma was unable to separate her work from her home life They also both came off as a little self righteous I m not upset by that, because they were well rounded characters, just not characters I particularly liked Reading both of their sections, I just wanted to sit them down and be like, look I know this is hard on you I know you feel so awful because it s hard for you to get a job after this mess hard for you to move on after everything you did wrong, but it s time you stopped thinking so much about how hard it is for you and started thinking about how hard it is for everyone else involved I m honestly not sure that any character in this novel did anything that wasn t motivated by selfishness But that s all just babble, and really the only thing I technically disliked about this book was that the truth of what happened Have you ever had a friend who was under the impression that you didn t know something when you really did, and then when your friend finally comes clean about it they do that let s have lunch, there s something really important I need to tell you thing, and they tell you and they act like it s a huge revelation, and you re just sitting there like really That s what the truth felt like here Did I know it Well, not technically But it was dangled like a big, fat cherry, some big huge revelation, and then when everything finally got all pieced together it was just a little underwhelming Overall, though, I liked this book It was never something that I felt like I had to rush through to get to the ending, and it all felt very realistic and very slice of life to me I liked that, since I ve been very busy and have only had time to read over my lunch hour at work, and it s easier to do that with a book you don t have to struggle to remember I d recommend it, especially considering the only real complaint I have about it is that the big reveal was less than shocking Since I don t think it s been marketed as a mystery I don t think that s an unforgivable offense

    Thoughtful and provocative insights about American values and culture as well as a good read.

    Too much detail in parts of the book caused it to drag a little.
