So I picked this one up because I read Room and it totally changed me inside. Loved the book so read this one. My best description is UP (Pixar) with a mouthy foul mouthed teenager in Nice. Emma Donoghue is a fantastic interpersonal relationship novelist. The focus of this is family and what it means to each of us. Do not read this thinking you’re getting Room, but if you enjoyed that book you will enjoy this. If you have not read Room, stop here and go read it. It will change you inside. I will read another book by Emma based on this novel.
