This chaotic, happy household is disrupted when a grandfather with dementia suddenly has to move in. “Fans will recognise not only her gift for representing a child’s point of view, but also her knack for showing how a family, no matter how small or large, develops its own language, even its own culture” the New York Times.

This book needs more drama, and perhaps less characters. It was a good book overall. I found it confusing because there were so many characters.
Good story line
