After the McNairs settle for good into their new, large home in Oregon, tragedy strikes, and the family, especially the four children, learns just how far it will go into a world of lies, murder, and insanity to stay together

Blackwell North Amer
When they move into a new home in Oregon, the McNairs know they've settled for good. Warden, Lee, and the four kids take to the big old house like they were designed to live in it.
But when tragedy strikes the family suddenly, the children face the prospect of being separated by the state. Rather than be sent off to different homes, the four of them - Kevin, Amy, Liz, and Brian, ranging in age from fifteen to six - agree to tell a lie. A big lie. It's the sort of deceit that can hold a family together or tear it asunder, and it will certainly separate the good children from all others.
Or will it?
The Good Children is a masterpiece of lies, love, insanity, and possibly murder.

This book touched me. Maybe cause I'm also a middle child with a younger brother who experienced hallucinations. Perhaps because we all want a happy ending to a sad story and this book provided it.
