This book had me all over the place!
For one, it reminded me of what I was a kid and, too, read a big old dictionary. (I should look into having it repaired, it‘s in pretty rough shape!)
But I found it a little hard to fully connect with the main characters, the twins, as it was a short book and it covered their entire lifetime as well as various family members. At times I was ready to move on, yet found myself tearing up towards the end.
