The Other Shepards by Adele Griffin.
Finished this in one day XD
Basically, the story is about a family- The Shepards. Three of them have died, a drunk driving accident, and the two new children, Holland and Geneva, are left basically to themselves.
(I dont blame the parents. Having your children die must be pretty tough.)
The characters are very distinct. There's Holland, the more responsible, day dreaming indulgent, over-thinking big sister. And then there's Geneva, who has all these quirks about her, that you just must read because i can not explain them.
It's a short book, really. It's one of those books that just moves along and doesnt really have a climax.
It is a great book. I recommend.
(Next up- Right Behind You by Gail Giles.)
