Do you like the book?

I like the Book!

I liked this story a little because it was shorter than what i expected and there wasn't many events so that's not really my kind of story even if the subject was quite good.

In the story a conflict will be caused by Ede, John's daughter . Firstly it will be between Ede's mother and billy's mother,(billy is the child injured by Ede,she took the bear that he was holding and pushed him so he cried) and then there will be a fight between the two children's fathers.

I concluded that in this short story the children have characteristics of adults while parents acted like children.
