Picture Us in the Light; Kelly Loy Gilbert

Picture Us in the LightPicture Us in the Light by Kelly Loy Gilbert
My rating: 2 of 5 stars

This had promise, but also too much going on. There's the plot-line about Danny's sister and how she died, the plot-line about why Danny's parents just picked up and left Texas (and what they're hiding), the plot-line about Sandra, and then the plot-line about Danny's feelings about Harry. Of course there's intersection, but the problem is more that focusing on one or two would have made for a stronger book. As it is, all feel as though they're each being given short shrift and no character is fully fleshed out. The pacing is also a problem, with the first almost-half being slow and filled with back-story.
