The book was really eerie to me. The story behind it was a good one, but something about this book and the pictures irked me. And I could not set my finger on what it was. I feel like there are a lot of mature issues underlying within the story. For example with the second voice, all the pictures in his section were dark and gloomy, until he started talking to his daughter. But I feel like it shows the issue how unemployment correlates with depression. It also brushes on the issue of class difference. The two families definitely came from the totally opposite sides of town. Charles and his mother were nicely dressed and proper. While Smudge and her Dad were in casual attire. But I think the meeting of Smudge and Charles shows that no matter what your background is, friendships can be made.
