I really liked this book, though it was hard to get into at first. The style of writing is a little different, as not everything is explained in detail. However, the characters are intriguing, passionate, and all have their own stories, which they reveal in time. Gavalda is French and I love the way she uses language. A good story for a book club or summer read. Definitely will read more of her novels.

One of the main understandings you get from this book, is the sense of family that develops between the characters. I'm a believer that family is what you make, not what is given to you, and Gavalda illustrates this with her novel. Bon Appetit!
