    I started this book thinking, Oh my, why did I have to get this book from the second hand book store I could ve bought something better But in truth, it was a really good book Totally different from what I expected, and I mean it as a compliment.

    This was a quick and fairly easy read Not to say it was really light , at first I thought it might be but it developed somesubstantial ideas and was quite touching and disturbing in places.

    Nothing like the blurb suggests at all, at first I was bit sceptical but as the book when on I don t think I ve felt so emotionally moved in such a long time I just wanted things to go better for Danny and the ending was really beautifully Such an interesting take on family and coping with grief.
