My rating: 2.4
This storyline sounds intriguing *spoiler alert* about a family of a brother and the girl Rosemary who tells the story and her 'sister' Fern. Rosemary and Fern are like twin sisters until Fern disappears when Rosemary is 5. Fern is a chimpanzee. Rosemary's brother, Lowell, goes missing a few years later. The story of love, loss and animal cruelty is told in flashbacks that are very choppy and disjointed and Rosemary's voice is very whiney and grating. I just didn't connect with any of the characters and felt disappointed that, despite the promising storyline, this book fell flat for me.
