  1. Hiya! I would love to be entered in this giveaway. The reason I have an interest in this story is due the idea that we get the point of view from the sister, whose feelings toward her brother are mixed (love because are sister/brother, dislike for ways in which they treated each other) and therefore the way she deals with him being missing will make for a fascinating read. Normally we hear from the grieving parents, but now we will hear from the daughter who likes to finally be the center of attention, even though the circumstances are sad. Just sounds like an odd book, which are the kind I like. Cheers!

  2. I think it sounds like an interesting read.

  3. I wanted to read this one because of the brother brother and I are very close and I always have an interest in how others are with their siblings. It sounds fantastic from your review!

  8. I just commented, but didn't really address why I wanted to read the book...

    First of all, it sounds intriguing. I want to know what happened!

    2nd, my 20th reunion was this year and made me think a lot about high school days. I don't miss them much! I could use another reminder of why it's not so terrible to be 35 already.

  9. i think the perspective is really fascinating. I dont have brothers, only older sister and think this story looks really interesting for the relationship involved

  10. The cover is so interesting it makes me wonder what it is about and definitely want to read it!

  11. I would like to read this book because it is totally different than what I normally read and I am ready to break into a new genre.

  12. I loved reading the review. This book had me intrigued just from the cover. Having grown up with 5 siblings and having four kids myself, I'm always intrigued by books with great stories about sibling relationships.
    Thanks for the giveaway~

  13. I've never read this book, but I have seen a lot of great reviews, so on my list it goes. Thanks

  14. I would love to be entered. My own brother drives me crazy but I myself would go crazy if something happened to him. So the point of view I think would make for an interesting read.

  15. I think this would be an interesting read-it reminds me slightly of My Sister's Keeper.

  16. I would love to win this book because I think it would make me reflect and reevaluate my relationship with my own brother.
    Thank you for the giveaway :)

  17. I'd like to read this book because I've read good reviews for it on many blogs.
