So i take it that the book wasnt good
Every night, at bedtime, my son and I read for 15 minutes. If my son really enjoys the story, he will ask me to read just one more chapter; he did not ask me with this story. We thought the book would be fun to read because of the title, but it turned out to have a serious tone. I think it had too much happening for a short story. It touched on lying, forgiveness, commitment, responsiblity, having a baby as a sibling, health issues with aging grandparents, and wanting a dog. When we read a story, we like to feel what the character is feeling. There was just too much going on for us to actually get involved with the character's feelings.
