By Nicholas Sparks and Micah Sparks
Of course Nicholas Sparks has written many great novels, from the Notebook, Message in a Bottle, The Guardian, and many more, but this touching book is about him growing up with his brother Micah and sister Dana and their strange parents. I still shake my head about some of the things they did or didn’t do with those kids.
But they turned out fine, mostly. One of the strangest things they did was that Dana and Nicholas shared a birthday and they would only celebrate Dana’s birthday “because she was a girl and the younger one.” They were poor, but this still boggles my mind.
The three weeks with his brother happened while Nicholas was extremely busy writing books and doing book tours and Micah was busy with his own business, both had families, and they took a 3-week trip around the world together. Enjoying the moments and reflecting back on their childhood.
I thought I had read this book many years ago and wanted to send it to my brother Mark who is one of my closest friends (Just like the Sparks brothers) and thought I’d just flip through it again. Turns out it had been on my shelf all these years and I had never read it :-O
So I did. I can’t wait to mail it Mark so he can read it. A wonderful book filled with times when you laugh and times to cry.
