THERE ARE PERHAPS NO DAYS OF OUR CHILDHOOD WE LIVED SO FULLY AS THOSE WE SPENT WITH A FAVORITE BOOK. MARCEL PROUST
Review of My Kind of People
July 30, 2020
Lisa Duffy is one of my favourite authors so I was excited to read her latest book. This is another character driven novel that is located in New England. Ten year old Sky has recently lost her parents. Surprisingly they have named Leo as her guardian. Leo and Sky’s parents had been best friends for years. The relationship between Sky and Leo is written so beautifully. The author’s characters are always so real and authentic which is one of the best aspects of her books. Unfortunately not everyone is happy Leo has uprooted his life to live on Ichabod Island. Leo was recently married and his husband wants them to return to their previous comfortable life in the city. Leo is pulled in different directions and the arrival of Sky’s grandmother further complicates things. I loved this book! Leo and Sky are amazing characters. The secondary characters play an important role in the story and they are are also so well written. If you love character driven stories that will stay with you long after you have read the book then this is the author and the book for you!
