No sweat, Jen. I have definitely done that before.

Well, I (as usual) was the toughest critic of the book. I liked the story, but I had a problem with the writing. It just felt really lifeless to me - not a very thorough job of characterization, and the prose was dull in my opinion. It also bugged me that he told most of the story in dialogue although it's unlikely that he remembered dialogue from 80+ years before. Knowing something about orthodox judaism, I had some doubts that the mother would have sat shiva for Lily and then decided to acknowledge her so easily.

Overall I gave it a 6 because I thought it was a compelling story, but felt it was poorly executed. Amber and Michelle both liked it better than I did. I think Amber even gave it a 9. I will say that the story was interesting enough that I read it quickly and wanted to find out what happened. Thanks for nominating it, and please let us know your thoughts and opinion.
