What’s it about: A memoir told through reflections on life-shaping relationships and interactions with animals.
What made me pick it up: This book is SO CUTE!
My favorite things: I was pleasantly surprised by how effortlessly readable this was. Montgomery’s anecdotes vary between heartwarming and heartbreaking, but always highlight the importance of connection and family – even when your family doesn’t fit the traditional mold. I also found Rebecca Green’s illustrations to be absolutely charming.
Who it’s great for: Fan’s of Sy Montgomery’s other work. Readers interested in memoirs with unusual structures.
