I loved the juxtaposition of the past and the future. While the story is told in the now, It feels like you're right there with them every time they talked about what happened in the past. It was a story you felt, not just read.
Aside from the novel being pretty much unputdownable, the story was really current and ripe for its time, now.
Trell, short for Van Trell, her dad is in prison for killing a young girl. But, not for one second does Trell believe that her father is actually guilty--and neither does the Mom. This is what sets the pace for the story--and what keeps it going.
Every single part of the story is clearly well thought out, perfectly paced--and downright gripping. It was like watching a really good episode of your favorite crime show. I was glued to its page, and the proverbial edge of my seat.
Although I started to put the pieces together--there will still parts of it, they caught me off guard--in a good way.
This is my first time reading this author, and I can guarantee with a book like this--it will not be my last.
Well flushed out plot
