    Reading this book brought me back to my childhood I remembered how I thought, how I felt, how confused I was how to soothe my mom, how frustrated I was feeling impotent to change the situation, how frantic I was to search for information I wasn t supposed to know, how the adults talked like I wasn t being there. Oooh well but little have changed actually, I just got used to themMr Epp, I think your translation is superb.
