Sara Habein’s #CBR4 Review #23: Into this World by Sybil Baker

Into This World by Sybil BakerThe crux of Sybil Baker’s Into This World comes in the very first line: “You’re giving up stability for the unknown.” The speaker, in this case, is Allison Morehouse’s father, Wayne. Allison has just informed her parents that she’s quit her longtime job, for reasons she is not completely sharing, and her “do-the-right-thing” father cannot wrap his head around it. A Korean war veteran, he has favored a steady paycheck and benefits, and in ways that we will soon discover, this often comes at the expense of his heart. Before they can finish this conversation, however, they are interrupted by a frantic phone call from Allison’s sister, Mina. Though she does not tell her sister exactly what she’s upset about, she says of their father, “He lies.”
