Somebody’s Daughter by Rochelle B. Weinstein contains an important message for anyone raising a child in today’s social media crazed society. The message seemed more important than the actual story and how it unfolds.
Emma and Bobby Ross live an idyllic existence on Miami Beach. They are still in love, have two delightful twin daughters, and run a thriving hotel business. Of course, nothing is as it seems. When they learn of their daughter Zoe’s indiscretion and realize her mistake is at risk of going viral, their flawless public facade begins to shatter.
As their lives begin to unravel, the Ross family must make a few painful decision. Emma is faced with the ghosts of her past mistake and has to consider sharing the one big secret she has kept from her husband, Zoe has to build up her inner strength to face her public humiliation, and Bobby must transform his beliefs if he is to help his daughter.
This book was painfully reminiscent of a soap opera or cheesy Lifetime television show. The first chapter was absolutely dreadful. I forced myself to continue and I must say it did get better. Zoe had the most depth by far. Most of the characters fell flat. I cared what happened to them because no one should have to deal with what they went through—not because I liked them. The last few chapters made up for the rest of the book. There was some character development and some memorable quotes in the latter part of the book.
Although this is not my preferred genre and I wasn’t a huge fan of the style of writing I recommend it as a must read for any parent navigating the frightening technological world.
I ended up giving this a solid 3 out of 5 ⭐️.
