Breaking Away

by Anna Gavalda

Touching, funny and perceptive, this short novella about adult French siblings taking a trip should appeal to women with brothers, sisters or in-laws. I enjoyed this bright and breezy read.

My brother never gets annoyed, never says anything bad about anybody, hasn’t an unkind bone in his body, and does not judge his fellow man. My brother is from another planet. Venus, maybe.
