    Quick but not easy read
    The book opens with a suicide and a short note: ‘He isn’t who you think he is’, written to the victim’s adult daughter. The rest of the book is the daughter’s present-day actions with flashbacks to her haunted youth, as she searches for who ‘he’ is. Along the way we learn how she came to be the person she is today. I read this book in one day, as it caught me from the first chapter and I couldn’t put it down. Some of it was predictable, but there were still surprises that kept me on edge. Character development occurred slowly, but it all made sense by the end. I recommend this for a quick but not easy read, as it deals with family issues that are very disturbing.

    TV Movie Fodder
    I will admit that I read the entire book in one evening, it is a compelling, easy read. Within the first 50 pages, I had it categorized--this will definitely be a chick TV movie. We have seen the scenario in many slightly varied forms--abuse, rape, coming of age love, and what isn't predictable in this book, sometimes doesn't ring true. The characters are well wrought, and the initial premise with the suicide is intriguing. So...take this book to the beach, or sit in a hammock and enjoy.
