It's hard to write a review for a book you truly wanted to like but cannot. The author also seems to get the idea that an ebook shouldn't cost as much as a paperback or hardback, which is a lesson so many could do to learn.
The book itself is rough. It needs a good polish with a smart editor. The main problem as I see it is in the dialogue. The children don't seem to know how to use contractions. This leaves the dialogue feeling very formal. The pace stutters, at times you blink and wonder what happened, others seems to plod. This is the first of a series, but there is some back-story about two character's relationship that isn't even mentioned until a crisis happens because of it. I found myself backtracking to see if I had missed something.
There is a great deal of heart in this novel, but as I said a good polish with a smart editor would wipe away most of the problems and leave a rather enjoyable read.
