Beautifully written, as always. When I read this one initially, I was thrilled to peer inside Sammy and James' lives- finally! We've learned all about Jeff, Mina, Dicey, and Bullet. It's Sammy and James' turn to work out their own demons, and James becomes more human and much more sympathetic. Very satisfying. ( )

some parts really dull. others pretty good. ( )

We get to know Dicey's brothers better, as they take a journey (in more ways than one) to find their deadbeat father. Still good, but probably my least favorite of the set. ( )
