    This was a good book that touches on the difficulty children sometimes experience with aging grandparents. It also has a mystery to solve.

    3.5 rounded up. Many of the details seemed unnecessary and tedious. I grew to like Kate more at the end because she became introspective. Sliding doors did it better.

    It is nice to read a book where the main character is trying to bring his family back together. Interesting way to use a story within a story
