I had been so anxious to find out what happened to Miranda and her family, but this sequel left me feeling dissatisfied. There are gaping holes in the story and a lot of things are left unexplained, but the worst is the ending. Readers are once again left wondering what will happen to Miranda and her family. There may be another book, but at this point readers might be losing interest. The relationship between Miranda and Alex seems forced and unbelievable, and Miranda’s decision at the end of the book regarding Julie is bizarre and terribly out of character. I recommend it for people who have read the first two books in the series, but readers need to be warned in advance that they will not receive any sort of closure with this latest installment.
Recommended with reservations to gr. 9-12.
