The protagonist of this story is this little boy that obviously has major issues, and yes I understand it’s because he has lost his father, but the kid has no morals and no common sense which would be fine, but it bothers me because the writer tries to make the kid seem like he’s really intelligent but really he’s just a child that needs to stick with his therapy.
His mother either doesn’t know how to discipline him or just doesn’t care. The child is very irritating through-out the novel.
The other annoying aspect of this story is the grandmother and the “older renter” that ends up being her deranged husband that can but doesn’t speak. He writes out how he feels everywhere and anywhere and for some reason this woman puts up with it. Urg.
I think this book was only liked because the incident of 9/11 was a focus point. I think if 9/11 wasn’t apart of this book, a lot of people would think it was incredibly lame.
This book was not for me.
