    Interesting tale of family and dysfunction

    Jen Sookfong Lee's "The Conjoined" focuses on dysfunction. Donna and Gerry had been foster parents for many years, fostering some very difficult children, including two young teenage girls who one day just disappear; their daughter Jessica was ten at the time and throughout the book she reminisces about life during this period. After Donna dies, Jess and Gerry start cleaning out the family home and find the bodies of two girls in a downstairs freezer. The remainder of the book deals with Jessica's search for the truth and how this experience affects her. I enjoyed the read, although parts were a bit unsettling. The novel is set in Vancouver, BC, where I live, and I always enjoy a book more when I am familiar with the setting.

    Disappointing

    Looking for a good mystery, but got nothing to keep me hooked. Superficial, trying to be introspective. Unsatisfying ending

    Tried Hard

    This book tried very hard to shock the reader but I was left lacking. The text is rich and emotional, but the story lacked resolution. It explored the many dimensions of mother daughter relationsips and gave an intersting perspective on public welfare and its efforts to help occasionally being harmful but the climax was not enough.

    Needs more!

    This book could have been amazing! I read it so fast and the writing is great. It grabs you right from the first page. Unfortunately it leaves you hanging and you don't find out what happens. I was very angry when I finished this book!

    Loose ends

    Good read but there are a lot of unanswered questions at the end. If you like to create your own conclusions then this is a gooder.
