I understand that but this family was full of manipulators. Jeesh!!! I was so confused, I didn't even know who to believe! This novel was pleasurable and disturbing at the same time. I couldn't put it down though. Lol. I'm actually ready to check out the sequel which doesn't come out until July, I think. My only gripe was that it took a lot of pages to get a point that could have been reached in half the pages. It really was not that big of a"wow" moment, it was a little predictable. But as I said it was entertaining.
