"The Deep End of the Ocean" by Jacquelyn Mitchard
My grade: B-
I look at this book as having a lot of potential, but very poorly edited. The basic story is about a family whose child gets kidnapped, and what happens to their lives as a result. The characters are, though, mostly unbelievable. In other words, character development is poor at best. There was also very little emotion evoked, even though I expected this one to be a complete tear-jerker.
This book feels more like a draft rather than a finished project. With better/more editing, this could have been something good.
