Emmy and Oliver are next door neighbors and best friends, until the day in second grade when Oliver’s father kidnaps him. Ten years later, Oliver is back at home and his father is on the run. No one quite knows what to do or how to act.
This was an interesting story, but honestly, the book was just kind of so-so for me. Some of the writing and characterization didn’t work for me, and I wanted a much thicker, deeper exploration of the psychology. I don’t have much to say beyond that. It wasn’t a bad book, and it wasn’t a great book, and I often think that sort of in-between is the hardest kind of book to write about!!
