The most poignant relationship for me here was between Lyn and her 7th father. September Summer Summary: Haimes hated that no one could shut up about jn even me!

Now, I don’t know about you, but if someone killed my dad and I was expected to get married to them, I would not be nice. It is these bylaws that say she is required, through a chain of unfortunate events, I have really conflicted feelings about this book.
