Little Big Love Reviews
I could ask my mom, I suppose, but detectives didn't work like that.Ten-year-old Zac knows he has a dad - everyone has to have a dad - but he's never met him.
His nan lashes out with fury and his grandad gets real quiet every time Zac tries to talk about his dad. Most importantly, his mom (Juliet) never speaks of his dad (Liam) other than to say Liam "did a runner" before Zac was even born.
And yet, how could that be true when (at the end of one very, very painful date), a slightly ...more
This was an adorable story of ten year old Zac who is overweight and bullied and just wants to know why his dad left him.
Juliet, his single mother, tries to do her best for her very intelligent and imaginative son. However, the family has secrets that involve Zac's dad and only one person can get to the bottom of that secret.
Mick is the grandfather who sees a whole new world through his grandson's eyes and also holds a terrible secret.
Absolutely delightful read that I thoroughly enjoyed!!
A charming and emotional story about love and family. The story is complex, much more so than it seems from the blurb. This isn't simply a story about a little boy trying to reunite with his father, it's so much more. It deals with secrets, forgiveness, and a lot of issues people face in their every day lives. Main character Zac is bullied fairly mercilessly at school, and it's hard to stomach sometimes... especially because he is just the sweetest thing. We also get perspectives from his mother ...more
Love is blind. Love is patient. Love is kind. Love is forgiving.
Sure is and oh by the way ten year old Zac is going to steal your heart in this one. Trust me!
Zac Hutchinson is a young detective (in his own right) and has an accomplice Teagan to help in solving the mystery of his DAD Liam . Of course he has a colorful M.O. (modus operandi) or a way of doing things to get the job done.
Using plenty of good ol fashioned grease work he uncovers the truth and unravels the mystery piece by piece start ...more
Zac is a ten year old who is on a mission to find his father but nothing is as it seems. There were so many lies that had been uncovered and it really blew me away while reading. This was my first time reading this author and I enjoyed this book very much! It was written in three points of view and you could tell who was who which I sometimes have an issue while reading. So the fact that all the characters didn’t sound the same was a plus in my book. I would have liked a point of view from Liam’ ...more
Little Big Love is a beautiful book that had me laughing and crying throughout because it is just such a heartfelt, endearing, and captivating family drama. Ten-year-old Zac just stole my heart in his quest to find his dad, Liam, who he knows absolutely nothing about except that no one in his family really talks about him (and if they do, his grandma gets very upset), and his mom told him that his dad ran away before he was ever born. Yet, one night after a date that went very wrong, his mom Jul ...more
This was a sweet story of ten-year-old Zac who desperately wants to know his father. The story starts off with Zac writing a letter to his father inviting him to his eleventh birthday party in six months. Zac has no siblings and is raised by his single mom Juliet. He is close with his grandparents but talking about his father is taboo. He also admires his Uncle Jamie who passed away when Zac was just a baby. The story is told by Zac and Juliet and also Grandpa Mick. Zac is an awesome character a ...more
I can’t quite bring myself to rate Little Big Love in a way that rounds up to 4 stars. I enjoyed parts of it but I found it took an awfully long time to get to what was a fairly predictable end. Zac is 10 years old and lives with his single mother Juliet. As far as Zac knows, his father did a runner before he was born, but he’s determined to find him. The story focuses on Zac’s quest to find his father and the backstory about why his father disappeared. The story is told from Zac, Juli ...more
