Book Review: Everything We Ever Wanted: A Novel by Sara Shepard

This book was tough to get through. The plot was weak and confusing, and the characters annoying. No one spoke to one another, spending all their time assuming the worst and feeling sorry for themselves. The family secret was a joke. I pretty much spent the entire novel waiting for something to actually happen, and it never did.

This book could also have used a more thorough edit, as I kept encountering inconsistencies in the story (example: one character checks into a one-story motel, yet when he goes back to his room that night, he “went up the metal stairs to his room”) that were really annoying.
