I won this book from the Goodreads First Reads giveaways. I wasn't sure what to expect as I've only read one other book quite a few years ago by this author. I remember that I liked the book but I have not picked up any of her other books to read in the interim. I loved loved loved this book.

But the down-to-earth quality of the story, the easy pace, the understated yet heartfelt beauty of this substantive slice of a small-town boy/young man's life...

Oh my goodness that ended fast and, well, kind of underwhelming. But I guess family can be underwhelmingly normal, too. I liked Laura. She was quirky but responsible and mature. I liked Caroline's complexity as well. Just not enough.
