The style was honest, the concept was brave, the story was true...up until the very very very end. So much of this book was amazing and awesome. The voices of the characters came through incredibly well. This was not a sequel, but a true continuance 40 years beyond the events of the original. Only the final moments jarred loose from the carfully constructed foundation Motion built this story on, leaving me wondering if this is where he truly intended togo all along and I just couldn't (maybe didn't want to) see it, or if something happened that dictated the ending. I feel like I should read it again to parse it out, but the ending is the only reason I can only give this 3 stars.
