How realistic was the characterization? Everything seemed real. Like something that would happen at the base of a mountain or in a small town.
What are some of the book's themes? Trust and learning to not believe everything we see. People never fully expose their true selves. Never take this for granted.
Did you find that the cover and title represented what the story was really about? Neither one made much sense until the end of the story. Then everything fell in place nicely.
Disclosure: I received a review copy of this book from the author.
