    Fascinating story well told

    Recommend this book. The "Kids" have a very sad and amazing story to tell and they have done an excellent job of writing a group memoir using alternating chapters. Each grown "kid" tell the story from their point of view as a child at the time. This works very well.

    A great sibling story

    I think many people who are adults and grew up with siblings will really enjoy this book. I know, that does not exactly narrow down the audience. Story is written from 4 kids perspectives and it gets passed back and forth based on a time line. The kids are dealt a rough hand to say the least. But the book, I think, is uplifting and hopeful. I have not lost a parent and my life growing up was really fairly painless, but I still was moved by this book and at times related to the characters. it is not just them dealing with the fallout from their losses, but also a lot of normal growing up stuff. Drinking, drugs, sex, puberty, etc. Nothing is too over the top, so do not think it is a story of kids that totally lost their way. Not so.
    The 4 of them did a great job writing this and I am happy I found this book. I think you will be too.
