Is the story plot or character driven? Tough one. We discussed this quite a bit at the book club and each of us had a different opinion. I am going to go with plot. The entire story, and characters escalate from one particular incident which was Emma's 'kidnapping'.
Is the plot well-developed? Extremely. This is one best books I've read in a long time. Holmes takes a mother's worst nightmare and brings it to life in ways that captures (and breaks) your heart.
Who in this book would you most like to meet? Megan. How do you keep yourself together when so much around you is falling apart? I can only imagine what it would be like to be her. Disclosure: I received a review copy of this book from the author.
