Deliciously unique language, quirky but believable characters, realism that is oh-so-magical, tears, laughter, a life-changing message and the perfect heart-swelling ending. Oh, and lots of old soap. It's like nothing I've ever read! A couple of movies I've loved are brought to mind..."Big Fish" and "O, Brother, Where Art Thou?" I had to see those more than once and I'm on read #3 of Sway! Cass, M.B. McClean and the Belfuss Family Crawfish Boil will surely be seen on the big screen someday! A great book (and, hopefully, movie) for any age. Big hits for Disney, I'm sure!
