really liked it

I don't read children's fiction very often, but this one was recommended to me so I thought I'd give it a whirl.

It's a story about 2 brothers who are each dealing with the loss of their mother in different ways, and a father who reminds them to be excellent. The younger brother (and narrator) Damian tries his best to be excellent and to do good work every day. His heart is in the right place, but sadly the execution doesn't come off like he thinks it will. His older brother, Anthony, focuses on the almighty Pound/Euro, and is an excellent liar. Dad is just trying his best to keep a roof over their heads and teach the boys to be excellent.

This was a really cute story about growing up, and learning about how great (and burdensome) money can be. Some parts were a little outlandish, but that's often the case with children's books so it didn't bother me. I think most kids would like this book.
