Review: Father's Arcane Daughter by E.L. Konigsburg

Synopsis: When Caroline unexpectedly appears at the Carmichaels' doorstep on Thursday afternoon, life begins to change dramatically for Winston and his younger sister, Heidi. Caroline's reappearance after many years opens up a whole new world, as Winston's father recovers the daughter he thought he had lost and Winston and Heidi discover the sister they never knew they had. But as Caroline begins to uncover the hidden truth about her "new" family. Winston suspects that she may have her own secret to hide. Will he ever be able to discover the truth about Caroline? (from the back of the book)

Review: I can't quite describe this book. It's not a happy book,and yet, when it was over, I felt satisfied. It ended perfectly. The mystery, the characters, the plot - it was perfectly done. As with every Konigsburg book, at the end, I felt like a different person, and it took me some time to come back to the real world. I highly recommend.
