Areum lives life to its fullest, vicariously through the stories of his parents, conversations with Little Grandpa Jang-his sixty-year-old neighbor and best friend-and through the books he reads to visit the places he would otherwise never see.
For several months, Areum has been working on a manuscript, piecing together his parents' often embellished stories about his family and childhood. He hopes to present it on his birthday, as a final gift to his mom and dad; their own falling-in-love story.
Through it all, Areum and his family will have you laughing and crying, for all the right reasons.
Well-written, bittersweet and full of insight. Areum, who suffers from a disease that makes him age incredibly quickly, builds a tapestry of family memories and stories.As the book progresses you start seeing how Areum felt like his illness was causing his parents a lot of sadness. That was almost more painful than his actual physical struggles because of progeria.
