Dead To You by Lisa McMann is about a boy named Ethan who has just returned to his house after being missing for nine years. His family has obviously been under complete stress and when he comes back, their almost perfect family can become perfect again. But, not.

The only good thing I have to say about this book is that it's small and a quick read. But, even then, I'm not sure if that's a compliment being small.

I don't want to spoil the ending, but it wasn't that satisfying. The ending seemed almost too quick and I was definitely expecting something different. The book wasn't horrible, but it did move kind of slow and now I almost feel like I was let down by the author.

But, the real reason I'm so disappointed, was because halfway through I had a great idea for the ending.

Have you ever done that? Have you ever started reading a mystery of sorts, tried to think of the ending, and you get all pumped up for your ending...and the actual ending kind of falls short? That's what I think happened to me.

But the book just doesn't feel over.

The book isn't bad, so if you want to read it, then I would recommend it. But, I won't be specifically recommending it to anyone or putting it on my list of books that I absolutely love.
