In this absorbing novel, Catherine Marshall-Smith creates a captivating story of a modern American family in crisis. With lively dialogue and fast-moving scenes, she brings to life a set of richly-drawn, multi-dimensional characters that you will come to love: ten-year-old Brady, her long-lost dad, and his gay partner. As her loving grandparents fight to get her back, Brady faces some increasingly edgy scenes that ratchet up the tension until the dramatic climax.
What I love about this book is the way it surprises you. Just as you think it will fall into clichés or stereotypes, you are zipping through a scene you didn’t expect. The characters remain unique individuals, with their own quirks, and they act in ways that seem right to them.
Without scorn for anyone’s religion, the author deftly deals with profound differences that are tearing this family in two—and brings us masterfully to a surprise ending.
