History, mysteries, love, friendship, sacrifice, mistakes, an homage.
I’m telling you, people, I think I’m out of superlatives for this one. That’s why I had to start with a list. There’s so much in it – from today’s bullies all the way back to those from the past, choices we make every day to stand up or shut up, right on down the line to lost love and finding the people who become your family.
This one’s a keeper, and its love for one of my favorites – The Westing Game – is just one more way it reached out and grabbed me. Books like this are gateways to all kinds of things – learning about the real history that inspires them, reading other books of all kinds, asking questions about our own families and who we are – and it’s all good. It’s all good.
