SUCH a good book! I had figured out pretty early who was behind it, but didn't know the how/why...but even then found myself so engrossed in the story. My heart broke for Petra's parents and for Antonia (Calli's mom), I hated Griff, I wanted to hug Calli and Ben (and Petra, the couple times she was the voice of the story).
The worst part is that so many children are treated this way by their fathers, and that their mothers are treated the same way and too afraid to leave. The promises, the bull...it's the same every time, and they fall for it time and again, I've seen it happen.
This story tears you to pieces and then puts you all back together again...I loved it!
