3.5 stars--Well paced literary fiction about young adult siblings who lose both parents over the course of one year.
I didn't like this book at all. It took me a long time to finish because it was boring and didn't have a great plot. The only reason I finished the book was because I was hoping it would get better. It never did. From reading the back it sounded interesting but in reality it really wasn't.
Very well realized characters, very lifelike (ie, no tidy resolutions to any problems; no clearly definable plot).
