  • Stacey
    I received a complimentary copy of this novel in exchange for an honest review. I only knew a bit about the Dionne Quintuplets before reading this book by Sarah Miller.

    Ugggggggggh. This whole story is such a horrible cluster from start to finish. I picked this up because when I was a kid, my grandma told me about the Dionne Quintuplets and showed me their picture (a souvenir photo that is reproduced in this book); at one point I even memorized all their names. So ...

    I knew nothing about the Dionne quints before reading this and I'm surprising not to, especially as my family is from Ontario in this same era. Miller's story is told chronologically, and I appreciated how she tried to make such a mess balanced. There's always empathy and sympathy for the girls -- w...
