So, I ended up reading this book because of all the hubbub about the Baumgartners series and so I finally thought, what the hell? It was an okay book, just not my thing. I can't pinpoint exactly why, I just couldn't get into it. I'm pretty neutral about it. I didn't particularly like it and I didn't dislike it either. It was an okay read just to get a taste of the Baumgartners world to see if I'd want to get the others. While I probably won't be reading the others, I would recommend reading at least one of the 6 books in this series because the Baumgartners are an unusual and interesting family. And who knows? They might just be your kind of family.
