You will fly through this novel about the love of sisterhood. Braithwaite's prose is fresh and nerve-wracking. The title summarizes all you need to know. The best way to read this book is to dive in without much knowledge.

I think that suffices.

This was totally charming and lovely and hit me straight to the core. If you're a bookseller, you will love it. If you're in publishing, you will love it. If you're a reader, you will love it. If you're a human being with a sense of humor, you will love it. 

This is a book to rest in times of troubles.

This is the kind of book I wish I could write. Quiet, pensive, but dark. A beautiful coming-of-age story that doesn't have the over-hyped stereotypical nature that comes with this genre nowadays. At first I didn't understand Davidson's choice in flashing back and forth between past and present. Each chapter begins with a story about his protagonist's career in brain surgery. They seemed frivolous to me, but near the very end, he wove every piece together in a heartbreaking, nostalgic kind of way. A perfect summer read.
