*** We The Animals by Justin Torres

What a terrific book in a slim package! We the Animals tells the story (apparently highly autobiographical) of three boys growing up with parents who love them but who have problems. The dad leaves, comes back, hits the mom, hits the kids, the mom get depressed, and no one gets enough sleep. Somehow there’s a lot of hope in the story but it’s never sugary either. Read it, it’s only 120 pages and good for the soul.
