Review: Eleanor

Eleanor Eleanor by Jason Gurley
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Book Talk:
Eleanor and Esmerelda are twin sisters who are ripped apart by an accident. Eleanor is left to pick up the pieces of her family's life: an alcoholic and abusive mother and an absentee father. Then strange things start to happen to her when she walks through doorways...right into her family's past.

My Thoughts:

I love this book. It is a very sad, strange tale of family struggle with grief and depression. It reminded me a little of Stephen King's "The Talisman" in terms of the character jumping through time and completing a journey, but sci fi isn't quite the right placement for this one. It is such a wonderful hodge podge of realistic fiction, suspense, and magic!

Recommendation:
5/5 stars
Grades 8+ (some language)
