Reviewed: “The Guncle” by Stephen Rowley

This book soothed me. It made me laugh and it made me cry, happy tears and sad. As a single, childless aunt to kids not that much different in age from the kids in this book… I think I even learned to just be myself with them even more reading this. They can be themselves and I can be me.

And we’ll be okay, no matter what.

Sure, I’m not a rich star with a pool and a bottomless bank account but… sometimes you just have to stop taking yourself so seriously and be silly.

I didn’t expect to find a lesson in this book, and sometimes ‘lessons’ in books can be preachy and pretentious, but this is a good lesson. A good reminder.

And a fantastic book!
