oh my gosh! i loved this book right up until the very end. i have so many questions. where did sophie go, did she die, what was up with the multiple sophies who is ol grady/greedy how did the mom kill herself and how did sophie know it was going to happen and give her four hours to do it, what did sophie kill at 4 a.m. in the morning in the quarry books. what was up with the keys and the cave. did everyone die?was matthew and sophie sexually abused by ol grady. what the heck was up with the coat. this book was awesome but the author killed it at the end. i'm trying to find out where he lives so i can ask him all this

I thought this book had good petential but left out way to much i was left wondering who ol grady was and what was going on with the whole multiple sophies thing. I really just want to ask the author what everything meant in the book.

... i got the impression that sophie had been inscructed by her mother to kill mattie when he was a baby... and that she tried to kill him (dressed in the coat), but couldn't go through with it it, which is why mattie has terrible asthma - surely a memory of suffocation? - and that sophie has always been able to bribe her mother with this knowledge. sophie herself has been unable to live with the guilt of what she did and wants to kill herself, but waits until mattie is old enough to fend for himself... so in a way she's a tragic heroine... but who knows? it's a mystery... (would love to know what author intended though)
