The story was fun and enjoyable like the previous books in the series However this book really brought to the front something that bothered me about the other books It has bothered me since One Crazy Summer how Delphine is expected to be a mother to her sisters Everyone expects it and she is punished for not doing it If her sisters misbehave Delphine is often the one who is held responsible for their behavior for not keeping them in line It comes to a head here when Vonetta understandably rebels against her control Delphine is 12 she hasn t had the time maturing or modelling necessary to be a good mother Why does it surprise anyone when she isn t a good mother She is 12 for Pete s sake At the end of the book she talks about people showing her mercy when she didn t deserve it That just got to me It s the adults who should be ashamed for not being the adults to these children Delphine in my opinion is the most wronged of all the girls and no one ever acknowledges or validates her as a child Cecile tries to a bit in PS Be 11 but being Cecile she doesn t do in a clear way that Delphine can understand I want to give Delphine a big hug and tell her that none of it is her fault she should never have been put in the situation in the first place
