Finished From Ant to Eagle by Alex Lyttle. I received a copy for review.
Cal killed his little brother, Sammy. That’s the first thing we learn in this book. Soon, we learn there’s a lot more to it than that, but it’s important to know that going in. This is a great book, but it’s also a sad one.
It’s easy to tell that Cal loves Sammy and that he’s a good big brother. But he wants to spend his summer with Aleta (a new girl) and most of the time, nothing would happen because of it. But Sammy feels left out and then he gets sick. There’s no correlation, of course, but now Cal feels guilty.
This is such a good book but it’s a hard read. (Not the whole way, of course, but be prepared. This book will carve out your heart.)
Highly recommended. (Have tissues.)
