Mini-Review (click to view--possible spoilers)

Pro: The strength of this story is the various characters: Carli, Lucius, Beth, Sarah, and, of course, Nonno. By the end, we know them all pretty well, and we see all the conflicts between them.

Con: And then nothing happens. It’s all setup and no delivery.
