Just finished this book. Love, love, LOVED it! One of those that I couldn't put down... I just kept turning the pages because I couldn't wait to see what was going to happen next to the loveable main character, Joe. Every character is well fleshed-out and has an interesting story. It's funny, sweet, sad and unpredictable- just like life. I both laughed and cried my way through this story. Seeing life through Joe's eyes makes you appreciate the true wonder of it all... The astounding ordinariness of little day-to-day things, the capability of the human heart to be generous, grateful and loving. Upon finishing this book, you'll want to call your mom and hug your kids... and realize that life truly is what happens to you while you're busy making other plans.
