Improbable plot that works itself out in a courtroom, ala Perry Mason. Maybe I read too many police procedurals, but I had a really hard time believing that all the lies and twists wouldn't have come out in an investigation. While there is some great writing, the plot's final solution is very contrived. The book also treads on a line of "able-ism" that's pretty subtle but overall sets up the idea that only normal kids are ever wanted.
