Has anyone read SWITCHERS and its sequel by Kate Thompson? The sequel has
some very disturbing scenes in it, but I like them a lot. The only thing is
I found the "threat' in the first book a bit unbelievable and the parental
attitude... well! If my 14 y-o daughter disappeared for a fortnight and
wouldn't say where she'd been I wouldn't let her go out again the next day
- or week! And in Book 2, while Tess is still 14, she's allowed to roam
around after dark on foot. Doesn't ring very true... or maybe Ireland is
safer than Tasmania?
