Enough about the similarities I shared with the protagonist of this book. To begin with, Griff O’Neill is definitely not just an eight old child going on nine who should be misjudged for like the fictional child who could see dead people, he’s got the propensity to perceive what those around him are going through the invisible emotions they’re emitting.
At the same time, he’s been afflicted with a childhood illness that has caused both visible and physical changes in his body, changes which has begun to frighten him and changes which his parents are trying to keep him ignorant in comprehending as much about it as they possible can because of their own anxieties. But because of his perception abilities he occasionally can see beyond the pretense, and sometimes he desires he lack this ability.
Being a child of the 1950’s creates an empathy which to some extend I share with Griff, because like him I suffer from a childhood condition [genetic] which has caused my life to be shaped like it has been. The author, writing this book, has shown me he has a definite understanding regarding children, parents and others when it comes to the matters discussed in the book, and thereby adding to its authenticity of what the book is attempting to communicate to its readers, which is why I’ve given Mr.Tyminski 5 STARS for his endeavor here.
