Eh, like an after school special, but somewhat overwritten

Captivating - couldn’t put it down - each character is deeper than they realize growing throughout the book !
Insightful and spellbinding. Really enjoyed it and will seek out Ms. Ng's other books!!😀😀
Loved the book but not the ending. I hope she writes a part 2 because it ended with to many questions.
Just seemed kind of blah and boring. Not a deep emotional read by any means but it was well written. Just quick and easy.
Then dragged out unrealistically. Sounded a little like peyton
Place..mrs richardson would not be so mean nor would mia have been so stupid and uncautious. She was so careful her entire life witth Pearl.
I was bored at the end and wish i hadnt paid so much for this book on ebooks..
Much ado about nothing..
I read the reviews and was anticipating a great deal more than I received. I got bored with hearing about Shaker heights and how wonderful it was and the only place to live yada-yada went on and on. This book certainly is no classic. The book got to be interesting once t Mia and Pearl got to "wonderland “ i.e.Shaker Heights, but only slightly. Very predictable and found the families pretentious, selfish and uncaring.
I became completely engrossed with the families in this book and very quickly I might add. There are so many lessons about life to take away from this novel. It was funny, sad, scary and realistic in so many ways. I will definitely be waiting for the next work from this wonderful author.
If you haven’t read this book yet, what are you waiting for?! It’s truly one of the best books I’ve read in sometime! There are so many twists and turns that kept me from even wanting to put it down! Awesome!!!
This book touched me so deeply I cried in my darkened hotel room in Shanghai, China at 3 in the morning! I read it through almost non stop. It wove into a captivating story the intricacies of family life and that everything we do has so many further consequences down the road like a stone being thrown in a pond or dominoes knocking each other over! Great read, great plot line and great characters especially the children. It will be a movie someday. And to my two grown sons, I did my best
This was a great story, easy read, over too fast. Hope for a sequel
Great read. I read until my eyes grew blurry. It was like watching a train wreck. The title certainly fit the book.
