Opinion:

This is a simple child's story that I found beautiful and well written. It's a sad story and things are revealed lightly and gradually throughout. The story is short, and I fear that writing anymore of it will completely spoil it. Its a slight mixture of supernatural and reality.

Quick notes: This was given to me by an author, thus this review will appear in its entirety on goodreads as well as the blog. I would like to thank the author for the opportunity to read this book.

5 out of 5
(0: Stay away unless a masochist 1: Good for insomnia 2: Horrible but readable; 3: Readable and quickly forgettable, 4: Good, enjoyable 5: Buy it, keep it and never let it go.)
