The Family at Number 13 was a pretty interesting book. Broke into 3 parts my favorite part when it all came together. Though there was so much information on all the characters to get through, the psychological aspect of it is what kept me going. It was so interesting learning about this family from the view of the neighbors. The psychologist getting on the bad side of the wrong patient and the trouble that creates was a side I rather enjoyed and seemed possible. Learning the issues in this family, their dark secrets, and everything that happens once the doors close is always a thrilling story. S.D Monaghan has created a compelling story which was fun to read. I mean who doesn’t love hearing about family dysfunction. HAHA  We enjoyed this book and hope to read more from him.
