Sue's writing style is colorful, engaging and brings you into the story from the first chapter. The story weaves several lines in parallel as great stories will, and keeps you on edge until the finale. The character development is well done. For example, teenagers act and speak like teenagers, and the same for senior citizens.
Overall it is a great story and plot, and you can feel the character's distress or joy as the book evolves. This is a thoroughly fun and engaging read!
