Short & Sweet:
I felt the same way my students did on this one. I thought it would be dull, but it was very exciting and touching throughout the whole book. Brendan doesn't understand a lot of things in the world and has a notebook of questions, the top of which is why his mother doesn't ever talk about his grandfather. Especially when he lives so close to their family. Brendan goes out of his way to spend time with his grandfather which leads him into a lot of trouble.
Final Verdict:
A great story that really touched me and kept me reading.
