The one and only not sad book from the Books of Bayern series. I really love the silly character moments...basically, Razo, I love Razo. The story is charming, and the character development for pretty much everyone is spectacular.
I'd had no idea they made Wishbone books and now I've come across at least three different series. This is a super sweet adaptation that does reasonable justice to the original, considering it's a kids book.
Ruta Sepetys is very quickly becoming one of the authors I will read without question simply because everything she's written has been so consistently outstanding. It's solidly within YA, our heroines are teens and the endings are generally happy, but she doesn't underestimate what the reader can handle. I fell absolutely in love with this story and I'm excited to recommend it on to other readers.
