it was amazing

Stefaniak has a wonderful way of developing her characters and the story. It really feels when I read that the story is told as only the characters themselves could tell it, just as the narrator himself notes the way that his grandmother tells stories. For me this makes the book an absolute delight to read. The story is so warm, so personal. I found it to be extremely emotionally engaging. At times laugh out loud funny, at others eyes tearing up touching, at all times interesting. In short, a marvelous book.
