#2: Daniel is a nerdy middle school kid/author with both below average football skills & charisma. As he attempts to navigate his life in a world filled with zaps, Daniel struggles to figure out who is he & who his friends (specifically “girl” friends) are. If you like books that deal with mental health, you‘ll like this one. The pacing of the book started off slow (hard to get into), but by about page 150 it was at a much more enjoyable level.

Estella, a 1940s French seamstress, unexpectedly finds herself fleeing to Manhattan as the Germans near. Fabienne, begins to piece together the story of her grandmother‘s life as she travels to a 2015 exhibition of her grandmother‘s life work at the Met. If you like books that cross generations to solve the heartache of WWII, you‘ll love this one! The tone Lester sets allows us to see the love, heart-ache and strength of these remarkable women.

Although many of the experiences Kwan narrates are not ones that everyday people experience, he is able to capture the universal experience of losing a loved one. Sadness, grief, and family shenanigans arise as the Young family deals with the loss of Su Yi - I was brought to tears multiple times through this book, both from sadness and laughter!

I seriously hope that the original movie has a continuation with the second and third novel in this series! I loved the different perspectives with the different characters that Kwan incorporated into the novel - his use of tone distinctly sets each apart. Kwan expertly captures the trials and tribulations leading up to the marriage between Nicholas and Rachel, in a heart wrenching and on-the-edge-of-your-seat manner.

Loved this! I read the book after watching the movie and realized that the book was about 1000 times better! I absolutely fell in love with this series and am glad that the movie introduced me to an author who captures his audience with vivid imagery and authentic real-life situations!

ImperfectCJ I was avoiding the book because I disliked the movie, but maybe I need to give the novel a chance. ("Don't judge a book by its film adaptation"?) Welcome to Litsy! 2mo
