This is more about how families, nurses and the doctor care for people with severe dementia. Oscar is more of a background character, but it adds interest. How can he know when someone is about to pass away? There was a lot of information on Alzheimer's disease and how it affects the caregivers and families of the patient. I learned a lot from this book, even though it is a little depressing.
You know what's going on with each character, which means you know the answer to the mysteries. I was emotional with this book, feeling angry and sad with what was going on with the characters. It's a good read and I hope I never come across a daycare like this one!
