Publisher's Summary

Jake is part of a very special family: a rowdy bunch of siblings and an incredible mom and dad. They have a life filled with art, music, long summer nights on the Cape, and lots and lots of baseball. But no one is more special in Jake's mind than his younger brother, Edward. From the moment he was born, it seemed Edward was destined for greatness. He could make anyone laugh and everyone think. And he was the only kid in the whole town who could learn how to throw the perfect knuckleball.
Jake looks back on one year in particular. It was a magical time, when everything seemed perfect - until the unimaginable happened and Edward died. But looking back, Jake learns so much about himself by remembering his brother. He realizes what a gift Edward was to his family and those around him, and he sees firsthand the amazing gift Edward is able to give a stranger who is in desperate need of a miracle.

Sweet Story; Read, don't Listen

Endearing story of two brothers, one is special, almost luminescent with the eldest constantly in awe. Edward's goodness is passed to his sister Sabine and all of his gifts live on. Very short listen, so would recommend reading this one. Sweet read for young boys (maybe 7-12yrs) and of course girls would enjoy, too.

Okay

It was an ok listen. Unfortunately i could guess the ending far too early in the story, so felt flat when I finished it, as there were no unexpected twists to make it memorable.
