Frankly, I found her hard to like, though I felt sorry for her declining health. Yet the weird thing is, I want to read book 3.

I also did not like the way the people of the bayou were written in a very Long Time Gone book, group-think manner. Boothby criticized the mentality that provided attention only to those with the most horrific stories to tell, thus encouraging exaggeration. In search of safety, the group of boys and Ishmael go to that village, but soon leave. The story covers a lot of ground, with cycles of luck and misfortune right up until a father on his deathbed blesses his only surviving son by reminding him that he has the power to choose what kind of person he becomes. Mohamed was meant to go with Ishmael to the talent show in the beginning of the story but had to stay behind to help his father work.
