What Made Me Want to Stay Home & Read
This was a great coming of age, slightly suspenseful novel. Each sibling was well drawn and their relationship with one another was lovely. This book decisively wrapped up for me, which I also really liked. Added bonu—a really smart and intuitive dog that of course this crazy dog lady loved!
What Made Me Want to Watch Bravo Instead
I didn’t love some of the decisions that the daughter made. I found the parents’ characters a little opaque, but I think that was appropriate as this book was from the children’s perspective and how well do children really know their parents’ characters?
I would definitely recommend this one—it is a short quick read! Thanks for the recommendation @jchavetta!
