TeriNeosho, MOAge: 45-54Gender: female1 Stars Out Of 5Couldn't finish itFebruary 14, 2014TeriNeosho, MOAge: 45-54Gender: femaleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 1I am an avid reader and usually will finish a book even if it is not that interesting or well written. This book, 'Insight', I confess I could not finish. I just don't like the characters at all and I can't stand the way the grandmother and mother treat each other or the children. I also do NOT like that the younger sister's first word is a curse word. The story lags and I just couldn't find it in me to finish it. I purchased this book for my 13 year old daughter and am so thankful that I did not give it to her.
