Characters are a joy to meet as described by Canadian author, Jean Little. Believable, likeable and true to age depicted, it took me back to my own childhood at that stage. Thoughts, actions, reactions - all the characteristic behaviours with Ms Little's added insights of this threat to Jeremy's life as he'd known it.
Endearing moments between father and son, mother and son; maturing moments captured between brother and sister, Jeremy and a classmate his father had suggested befriending. All work together creating a tender story of loss, growth and understanding of family.
