The danger of secrets. WOW, that's all I could summarize it to. One of the most sacred bond-twins, are broken over apparently selfishness. However these act of selfishness also have a sacrificial element to it. They all done horrible things, some may say Jude is more evil, while Noah is... however, at the end, they both lie to protect their family hanging on a string. I find the parents somewhat responsible. The mom seems semi-neglectful/abusive. As with any sibling, they always think their parents love them less. As with story from different perspective, the truth tend to get muddled. But, I believe the mom overlooked Jude, abandoned her, and slut-shamed her own daughter. The dad isn't much better, constantly belittle his son for not being manly enough, shown strong favorite toward Jude etc. the family relation is just WOW

I have mixed emotions about the dead grandma ghost. On one hand is a nice way to add conversations and descriptions, but it doesn't seem very healthy. Both of the kids complete 180 flop also seems overly dramatic. This is one of those book with a kinda complete plot with mini links in there.(it actually reminded me of the Great Expectation with its wide range of time and people) the author do somewhat overuse metaphor, this led to some confusion and sometimes does the opposite making the things described seems unrealistic
