Thank you to all of you that told me to keep at it. I did and it got so much better!! So the dad’s portion of narrating WAS annoying like I stated previously, but it’s necessary to set up the story for the daughter and mother’s sections. Their narrations were great! That’s when the action happens. The first time I read this, the father's portion was very frustrating and I gave up. I then picked it back up and started to love it. I loved the different voices for different parts of the novel. The daughter and mother's portions were completely unexpected and it turns out there was much more to this story than I had originally thought. This was definitely a great read. The court room drama towards the end was the best part.
