This was an excellent book. I am going to see what else this author has and read those books too. The only problem with this book was that some spots seemed to drag, and the story jumped back and forth a little bit too much for my taste.

When Madeline is injured in a bike accident, she is left with the mentality of a six-year-old. Her husband and his new wife care for Madeline, caring her alongside their own children.

This was not written the way I thought it would be. It didn't focus as much on Madeline as I hoped it would. Still, it is worth the read.

This book was disappointing. The story was told from the "brother's" point of view. I wished it was more about Madeline.

I think if I had been better prepared for the way this book was written I may have liked it more.
I thought it was about "Madeline" but it really revolves around (and is narrated by) a completely different family member all together.

If you are expecting the story that the summary hooks you on, you will be disappointed. If you go into it more blind, you might enjoy it more since you have no expectations of how the story goes.

This book was all in all a good read, some very weird happenings but behind all that it really shows how much love can over come. Will definitely touch you, or at least it did me, put a smile on my face a few times too! Wasn't exactly a page turner that kept you waiting and wondering but a heart touching story of a families life and the obstacles they over came and the love they shared!
