My experience with stories like these is that they can be very good if you are lucky but ever so often they are not. I read some reviews on the book and decided to give it a try. This is one of the group that actually lives up to the synopsis. The book tells a clear story from 4 points of view where all the choices, bad or good get the space to he explained. The use of language has something raw and honest making it simple to get emotionally involved. The character building is very much done around the subject of the book which makes that some of the characters are balancing on the edge of shallow. But that is about the biggest complaint I can find. Though I did enjoy the book I am not sure if it is something that would pop in my mind if someone is asking me for a recommendation. It did not impress me that much. If you are pulled to the synopsis though and experience the same reluctance I described earlier you are more than save to pick up the book.
