I read this book last summer on a trip home and it still sticks with me. The intricate family tapestry Chloe Benjamin weaves feels tight knit, but also that it could snap with the least bit of resistance. A mysterious neighbor tells the children that she can reveal the precise day they will die and the rest of the story leaps from one family member’s journey to the next as they grapple with the consequences of that decision. I loved all of the family members and felt Benjamin flushed them out properly. The novel plays with the concept of fate versus free will, and each character handles it in a completely different way. Parts of the story were heartbreaking, but there was enough tenderness and humor to balance it out. A thought provoking and an interesting look at life and all that lies beyond, would definitely recommend!
