It was an ok book I liked the writing style and the little boy is too cute :)
Feb 15, 2008 Jason rated it it was ok  ·  review of another edition
I'm kind of fascinated at how many 9/11 books have:

--writers as central/significant characters
--children in cute/quirky engagement with grief
--images of shoes
--people who find, in the collapse of the Towers, a reawakening of, and then escape from, their own personal traumas.

Not a bad book, nor too memorable.

I just finished The Goldfish Went on Vacation, a nonfiction account of Dann’s loss of her husband. Sweet & Crazy follows very similar paths. I enjoyed it just as much. The little boy in the book was so much fun. “Now you’re a window,” he tells his mom after his dad dies.

Kind of a dumb story, I thought, but I liked her writing style.
