Third Sentence Thursday (4)

Third Sentence Thursday

Third Sentence Thursday is a weekly meme hosted by Sniffly Kitty's Mostly Books for beating back the forces of OTHER sentences!

1) Take the book you are reading now and post the third sentence
2) Review this sentence anyway you want (funny and silly reviews encouraged)
3) Post a link to your sentence in the comments

This week, my third sentence comes from The Murderer's Daughters by Randy Susan Meyers:

The Murderer's Daughters

I'm confused ... don't all parents treat their children like that when they're old enough?  Of course this seems to be coming from the child's point-of-view and if you're a parent, you know how distorted this can be sometimes.  Not that they can help it.  It's just that they think they know all the facts of every situation around them when, sometimes, they have no idea what their parents (or step-parents) go through.
