Nice glimpse into expat life in Germany
3 August 2018 | by kariann-martiSee all my reviews

I admittedly loved this mostly for the use of German and the German feel, as I used to live as an expat in Germany, and my daughter was young there.

I enjoyed the father-son relationship and seeing the boy struggle with who he was and how he felt about the girl.
