I had the hardest time reading this book but I also couldn't put it down. In the beginning the main character, Bennie Rosato, is buried alive by her twin sister. I'm claustrophobic and almost couldn't breathe when reading those sections. It gives me goose bumps just remembering it!
But I really enjoyed the book! Crazy, huh? Bennie's sister, Alice, has always been the bad seed. She's jealous of Bennie and impersonates her in an attempt to embezzle all her money. It made for an intriguing read.
Things have been different around the camp because my husband's father has been staying here. He had a slight stroke earlier in the summer and his short-term memory was affected. I'm at home during the week because I have to go to work. My husband has been staying at camp with him and I join them on the weekends. Have you seen 50 First Dates ? Remember ten-second Tom? Well, it's almost like that! He's easy-going and takes care of himself pretty much with a few reminders but it's the same conversation all day. I'm telling you, it's exhausting.
Other than that, though, this, my last school year, has been going really well, knock on wood! I'd like more reading time, but...there'll be plenty time for that next year when I'm retired.
