It took me a month to read Crow Lake from beginning to end. Not because it's a long book, but because it's a slow book. It's a story of two girls raised by their older brothers after their parents die in a car crash. It portrays, poignantly and humorously, the close relationship between the siblings -- absolutely beautiful. The plot will not change the world, but by the end of the book, I felt like I'd met four people and I was sad to leave them. I'd love to accomplish that in my writing.

***wondering why all my reviews are five stars? Because I'm only reviewing my favorite books -- not every book I read. Consider a novel's presence on my Goodreads bookshelf as a hearty endorsement. I can't believe I just said "hearty." It sounds like a stew.****
