Recommended to Siv by: Mindy Sauve

This is not a perfect book. It meanders like the mind of an old woman recalling her 104 years of life in the company of an unusual Boy Scout. But it is a charming book, with characters unique and human, the best and worst of themselves on display as they bump into and around one another like pin balls. In the end, it's a reminder that life can be hard and sweet and we need others with whom to share it fully.

"But certain [people], they move in and make themselves at home and start flapping their arms in teh story you make of your life. They have a wingspan" (p199).

Mindy Sauve I think it was an easier “read” for me because I listened to this one. I think the lists would have been annoying to read them all 😂
