I'll be honest. This was a tough book to read. It made me sad. The catalyst of the whole story is two grandparents getting a divorce, but the real focus was the impact divorce has on a whole family. Divorce is never just between two people. Everyone who knows the couple goes through the separation too. Here, the divorce impacts the grandchildren and the children of the divorced couple a lot and the story really becomes focused on how the family copes with the new set of circumstances that are in place. I'll be honest. This book brought me down, and not because Bunting was trying to be depressing. It just can't honest and end happily and cleanly. It's depressing and there's no way to avoid that.
