Still Waters

Still Waters - Jennifer Lauck I liked the narrative style better in this memoir than in Blackbird, but I did not love this book. The first few chapters were a satisfying conclusion to Blackbird, but the second half of the book was unfocused and little was revealed. I thought the last chapter -- in which she investigates the last days of her brother's life -- was leading up to more of her own story, but it did not pan out. If I wrote my own story, it would probably sound pretty much like this, which is why, unless something absolutely thrilling happens to me, I will not write a memoir.The author herself says she did not like this book, since it was rushed. She urges the reader to skip it and instead buy the "true sequel," Found. I think I'll pass.
