My Review:

Having 2 sisters and a brother I could definitely understand the sibling rivalry. I was excited when I found out that they were going to their aunt's house. I thought that this would be a great opportunity for them to get back to their roots and childhood. However, secrets never stay hidden. As they find out more about their mother they also realize that their mother's choices will affect them for the rest of their lives. I liked the ending and thought how could this be a series? All my questions were answered. In light of some new information, I also found myself liking characters that I did not like at first. I can not wait to read the next book to see more of these characters. I am giving this book a 5/5. I was given a copy, all opinions are my own.
