Bad Apple received a very nice review from tHe crooKed WorD. So we're happy about that, aren't we, and hope it leads to greater visibility and interest.
This is a very realistic story, which in some ways will break your heart. In others, you'll love it.
There's a lot going on in this book, but I don't want to go into it.
Too many spoilers. It reads quickly, and you'll want to push through to
learn what happens.
If I could say one thing in reply, if it's read too fast, you'll miss important elements. I know that those who have said they've read these books multiple times, find bits they didn't see the first go-round. Read it once for plot, go back and read it for meaning. YMMV.
