How much is “too much” to give our children when raising them today?

Camino Island by John Grisham

Camino Island by John Grisham (Dell, 2017)

John Grisham is a very good story teller. His writing style is engaging, characters are usually well draw. But, somehow Camino Island, published in 2017, falls short of the rest of Grisham's work, and seems amateurish.
