    This is one of my favourite books ever, and has been for a long time now.I fell in love with the characters Elray and Hansueli being my favourites and keep on hinting at my family to read it.After reading this book and being drawn by it s quirky and loveable ways I m still convinced that if I ever have a little girl, it will be an Elray.

    Elray is 6 when her parents perish in a freak accident, and she is looked after by two odd uncles, one the brother of her mother, the other the brother of her father How Elray handles the awful loss, and how she learns what love is, love of family friends and herself, is the basis of this book A good one.

    I loved this, loved, loved, loved it.Elray is 6 years old when she reaches up to touch the moon in the tunnel of love and accidentally electrocutes her parents She goes to live with her Uncle Harwood and her Auntie Ajax who s technically her Uncle Ajax The story fits loosely into Weird Little Girl Growing Up stories, but it s so muchthan that Elray is a wonderful narrator quirky, funny, thoughtful, off beat The characters are wonderful, a mish mash of the dysfunctional in all sorts I loved this, loved, loved, loved it.Elray is 6 years old when she reaches up to touch the moon in the tunnel of love and accidentally electrocutes her parents She goes to live with her Uncle Harwood and her Auntie Ajax who s technically her Uncle Ajax The story fits loosely into Weird Little Girl Growing Up stories, but it s so muchthan that Elray is a wonderful narrator quirky, funny, thoughtful, off beat The characters are wonderful, a mish mash of the dysfunctional in all sorts of ways And Elray and her friend Raoul, who like to practice dying in homemade cardboard coffins are the best of all

    This book was a bit different from anything I ve read before Elray is a very unique child She is very insightful and observant for her age I loved all the characters in this book, but especially Auntie Ajax The author s perspective on some difficult life situations actually fall in line with some of mine which is a refreshing change of pace Glad I picked this one up at the used book sale at my library.

  5. Joan says:

    I loved this book and its wacky, lovable but unconventional characters It s a wild,thrilling, sometimes sad others joyful ride through their unusual but loving family You don t need a conventional upbringing or family to have a great life, be a good person and no harm done.

  6. Julie says:

  7. Elisabeth says:

    This should have been the sort of book I love but somehow it just felt dragging and I was willing myself to get to the end It was too long and although there was some great writing in there it just didn t come together.

  8. Rachael says:

    Nope After 50 pages, I had to stop.
