really liked it

As young kids, four siblings visit a woman who can predict people's death date. They all get predictions for their own death. As life progresses, we see each brother facing their own predicted date. As the predictions become true, the remaining siblings start to see the influence of the woman's words.
We follow Simon, Klara, Daniel, and Varya. Each one facing their own challenges, the surviving siblings overcoming their deaths. A story about the power and influence of words in one's destiny.

Benjamin narrates each sibling's story quite well. Even though there is a feeling that no matter what attitude the characters take, the predictions will eventually take over, she still manages to inject hope in the reader.

I quite enjoyed this book and would definitely recommend it.
