Gosh the author gets preachy in this book. Sometimes it sounded like an overly simplistic demand for gun control. I got disgusted with that. And Peter's poor parents. Did the author really have to draw them with already one tragedy on their hands with the other son before Peter jumps the rails. Their lives end up as dust. Again overly preachy. And she beats the subject of bullying absolutely to death. Good surprise ending though.
This story was so implausible it was really hard to listen til the end. The reading of it was fine. It's just that where the authors take their characters is so darn unbelievable as to make you start laughing in disbelief at the plot fairly early on in the book. Others of Mr. Patterson's books are so much better written. I'm actually sorry I wasted points on this one.
Narrator was excellent! And I loved picking up Lindsey Boxer's life and story again. Thoroughly enjoyed the way the 4 friends stories picked up as though we hadn't had a lapse since the last book ~ which we have! Wish this author would stop messing with other stuff and keep writing for these characters! I don't think there was a false note here and I greatly enjoyed the book.
