    ....I feel like I should mention this. You are not going to want to hear it. But take it as one writer to another -- you cannot have this many named characters in your book. It will take away the focus on the main cast. Do not delve into all of their families unless it's absolutely necessary, and for god sakes, CUT DOWN the number of siblings each character has! You're getting bogged down in the details before you even start, and that's not a good sign.
