A moving story, although somewhat disappointing in some ways that I won't go into so as not to spoil the story for any potential readers. What I will say is that this is a book infinitely worth reading by anyone who cares about human relationships, and their effect on individual people.
I chose this for my 8 year old grandson's birthday because it boasts a whole host of features that would delight an 8 year old boy who is probably more tech savvy than me. Its adjustable Velcro-fastening strap is just the thing for an 8 year old with thin wrists, and allows for adjustment as he grows up. It should last at least until his mid-teens. He was delighted with it, so I can thoroughly recommend this watch to anyone who wants a 21st century timepiece for a growing boy or girl.
