For Sabrina Walker returning home to her broken family is the last thing she ever wanted. At least under these circumstances. It’s not the usual calamities that have brought her back though. No, this time someone has died.
Danny, her beloved cousin, just thirty-three, has been shot in the head at his own sister’s house.This time there will be no hoping, no lecturing, no cajoling—her favorite tactics to try to turn this family around. This time she must resign herself to the fact that they may never overcome their dysfunction. And the question remains: Who knows what happened to Danny and why aren’t they talking?
Told through the eyes of six characters, Kin-Krazy tells the story of one family’s search for answers in the untimely death of one of their own, while learning to accept each other for who they really are. Five Boundless Stars
This book was a crazy ride from start to finish. It comes from the many different viewpoints of Danny's family. It is a very sad book in my opinion. It is full of pain and hardships, but through it all it shows the strength of family. Even a dysfunctional one. I can't say I loved this book but I did enjoy reading it. In all truth, it was sad and a bit of a depressing read, but it was written well and had a good story line. I loved Sabrina. She fights hard and in the end it seems that she finds some peace with herself and her "Crazy" family.
I also really liked Danny even though you don't see much of the story from his viewpoint. The truth behind his death was definitely a shocker, a very big one, that I did not see coming.
