This book was okay.
I waited for a twist that didn’t come, and so many unanswered questions.

Plot summary: Jack, a teenage boy, is left to look after his two younger sisters after his mother is murdered and his father leaves them. The story follows Jack’s attempts to find out what happened to his mother, to get revenge.

“Reynolds could hardly bear to countenance the possibility, but maybe he had made a mistake. He liked to do everything right. The thought of having done something wrong was disconcerting. And the thought of anyone else knowing he’d done something wrong was unbearable.”
