The Innocents

The Innocents - Lili Peloquin I just couldn't get into this book. It's written in an odd 3rd person POV that switched between the sisters every two chapters, then every other one, then just random sections through out. There's also full pages that are just one paragraph, so it didn't seem to be as fluid as it needed to. Things the sisters did didn't make a lot of sense to me. First Alice is hoping to resemble Camilla so she can get the boy, then she gets creeped out when people start mistaking her for Camilla. With Charlie, there's an entire set up for a possible relationship between her and Stan, only to have her completely degrade him. What is the point of this? Overall, I like the idea of it, but it didn't translate.
