Since this is based on a diary kept by Tchaikovsky, I included it in non-fiction. Technically, it is creative non-fiction moving toward fiction. I felt this book had a lot of heart and I loved the blend of fiction and non-fiction. I would have done some things differently if I had written the story, but overall I think it is an inviting and interesting book.
