XX. "The Sister" - Poppy Adams
OK, authors. You get 30 pages. Sometimes you get more, but then you whip a red herring into the batter and I throw your book in disgust.
I know this is up for an award or someone loved it with a capital L. But what has two thumbs and doesn't give books much of a chance? This chica.
Bored. Read about moths and butterfly collections and collectors before. Got the metaphor between the dried up old collections and the dried up old sister living in the house. I fell asleep while reading. Not once, every friggin' time.
If it's worth it, convince me.
