My Name is Anton (by Catherine Ryan Hyde) … emotional journey through the pages

This is a very emotional journey the pages. The characters are well developed and the depth of strength and integrity displayed by so many of them is touching. The book covers a period of 55 years, so you are given plenty of time to see how the relationships develop. There are a lot of sensitive matters presented … suicide, alcoholism, domestic abuse, mental illness. While Anton is an amazing and responsible young man, his parents are the ultimate in selfishness and concerned with themselves and how people view them. There are so many dynamics explored that will hold your attention. Kudos to Anton’s grandmother, Marion, and his uncle, Gregor. They are such a strong influence in his life.

Thank you to NetGalley and Lake Union Publishing for my advanced review copy. All opinions and thoughts are my own.
