I enjoyed this book, when I read it earlier this year, and Abbi devoured it.
It is about a boy growing up in a small Utah town around the turn of the century who is not Mormon. It deals with such topics as; siblings (brothers specifically), parenting, family dynamics, social order, charity, etc.
There is an extremely sad part. I cried when I read it. Abbi brought it up to me, showing that she was ready for discussion, but was more thoughtful than talkative. That part of the book has tremendous worth and helped me look inside myself and ask serious questions.
