The Tenth [Review]

The Tenth

I am horrible about getting around to reading books, but I was determined to get some stuff done today. So, after I had dragged the boys around the house to clean the three main rooms, I sat down to take a short break and figured “Why not get started on my reading list?” So, I looked through the books and figured that I’d start with one that should be pretty easy to read. Quick, sweet, maybe entertaining, but more just something to help pass the time while I nursed little man and kept the other three quiet while Mr. slept.

I got the Kindle signed in as me and I got the book downloaded. Opened it up and started reading. The first thing I noticed was a few sentences that are just written differently than I choose to. But, it’s not bad writing, however I was quickly distracted from that as I kept reading.

This book is about a boy named Danny. He has lost some of his hair, an arm, and a leg and like a normal kid, he is trying to make sense of it. The nurses and his dad seem to be doing the best they can, but like any unexpected circumstance, it’s not an easy one to handle.

Danny and his family were caught in a suicide bombing shortly after a family outing. You are a part of the the journey that Danny goes through in order to come to grips with everything.

I don’t want to tell you everything that happens because it really is an amazing story and I can’t wait to share it with others. I will warn you, keep a box of Kleenex nearby, if you’re like me.

I found it a unique perspective–usually we only get the news side and then others calling names or saying that it had a “purpose” but, in all reality, we don’t understand how the people effected by it are feeling.

It’s an eye opening read and I am definitely going to have to reread with the boys in a few years, I think they’re a little too young to understand it right now. But, it definitely gives me a deep appreciation for my life.

I would recommend this book to everyone really. It’s powerful–very powerful!!

I received one or more of the products mentioned above for free using Tomoson.com. Regardless, I only recommend products or services I use personally and believe will be good for my readers.
