I love "A Better place" and this sort of 3rd book on Brendan and Casper is a great closure for them. But the writer's treatment of Nathan's story left me wanting. Just a brief summary on his encounter with his parents is disappointing and irresponsible of the writer. Nathan left a mark in "Someone is Watching" and his voice adds a lot of life to "A better place" too. This gentle character deserves his own story and certainly a much better follow-up. Roeder should have concentrated on Nathan and not Dane.
Dane's strong personality is up there with Brendan's and Shawn's. Nathan's gentler character would have been a better contrast against Brendan's and Shawn's.
Shawn's story is a good one and his closure with his father is a satisfying read.
Another problem with this book is I find it too preachy and wordy. Better editing is required as there is a lot of repetition and going around in circles on the same themes. Well I guess sequel is never easy especially when the prequel (A Better Place) is just so impressive!
