In SOMEONE LIKE YOU, Barbara Bretton brings you along for an emotional roller coaster ride. There is one thing I haven't mentioned. Whatever happened to Mark? You must read SOMEONE LIKE YOU, if you want to find out.
Barbara Bretton has always been one of my favorite authors; she always seems to bring the story out to where it seems like when you are reading that you actually know the characters. In SOMEONE LIKE YOU it kept me wanting to keep reading to find out what all was going to happen next. The Doyle family may be a little on the crazy side and weird; but that is what makes SOMEONE LIKE YOU such a great book to read. What family doesn't have a member in their family that would fit right in with the Doyle's? If you have someone like this in your family be sure to read this great book.
