    Riveting If I had to sum up this debut book in one word, that would be it What would you do if your father went to jail for statutory rape of your best friend Who do you side with What if your choice might be wrong I admit that I feel a lot of overwhelm from the metoo news of the world today, and wasn t sure how I was going to feel about this novel, but Schumann pulls you into Katie s world and wraps you in all the emotions from each character in such a way that you literally can t put the Riveting If I had to sum up this debut book in one word, that would be it What would you do if your father went to jail for statutory rape of your best friend Who do you side with What if your choice might be wrong I admit that I feel a lot of overwhelm from the metoo news of the world today, and wasn t sure how I was going to feel about this ...

    An okay readI bought this book from the blurb It was touted as a book of the year, and held the promise of so much, and in parts it did deliver, but overall it wasn t anywhere near as satisfying as I expected.I found Katie, the main character, tiresome and incredibly juvenile with her constant introspection and total self absorption As a teen this seemed reasonable, if tedious, but for a woman in her twenties, too damn naive to be believable, the deliberate way she hides her head in sand is no An okay readI bought this book from the blurb It was touted as a book of the year, and held the promise of so much, and in parts it did deliver, but overall it wasn t anywhere near as satisfying as I expected.I found Katie, the main character, tiresome and incredibly juvenile with her constant introspection and total self absorption As a teen this seemed reasonable, if tedious, but for a woman in her twenties, too damn naive to be believable, the deliberate way she hides her head in sand is not credible, especially as she goes to university and gains a degree and yet fails to gain any sense of self she is still so naively trusting as to be convinced of her father s innocence and this really stretched my credibility I kept thinking, hell at Katie s age I was a mother who had buried a child and here s a university educated woman who deliberately shuns learning the truth of her father s trial and conviction The other characters, Katie s mother, her brother who cou...

    2.5 STARSIt took too long for things to get moving The book is so focused on Katie, and she s such a frustrating character It would have been better for the story to be set further in the past, it just didn t seem believable that Katie was so sheltered and naive about everything that happened As it was, the chapters set at the lake house felt like they could have been from the 70 s....
