The concept of this book was intriguing when I first picked it up, and it was the concept that got me interested in reading it. The underlying tones of family, and finding a place where you belong, are something that is unique to this novel. But, those tones unfortunately weren't enough to make the story really stand out to me.
I had difficulty connecting with the characters in this novel. Neither Chris or Zachary seemed to be fully fleshed out enough to really be emotionally attached--actually, I found myself connecting with Abby more than the others. I know this is supposed to be only the first installment, but it fell short of my expectations.
