I really loved this book once I sat myself down and just started reading.
The first chapter is absolutely amazing and really sets the rest of the book up. It’s told from Michael’s point of view, in 3rd person, and really shows his life so far. He lives a life filled with worries and doubts and not the life a 5 year old should be having. His parents’ over-protectiveness has started seeping into his own thoughts, but underneath that, there is a small glimpse of that little 5 year old spirit.
The rest of the book jumps between the character’s points of view and tells both the present and past events. It shows each of the character’s connection to each other and gives the reason they act the way they do.
The foreshadowing in this book is simply amazing and I could not give enough praise to Tucker for brilliantly weaving in hints of the future with every page. It kept me guessing at every turn and even when my guesses weren’t correct, I could look back and see how something came about.
This was the first book I have read of Tucker’s and I plan on reading more.
