The Children's Crusade revolves around four adult children deciding whether it's time to sell their childhood home. Each sibling tells their own story in first-person narratives and these chapters are interwoven with omniscient narratives that describe their earrlier lives.
I love books like this - explorations if dysfunctional families - and this is one of the best ones I've read in awhile. Each character is such a fascinating individual and while their adult voices are distinct from each other, they're also completely recognizable in their portrayal as children.
As a writer, this is the kind of book that inspires me. I have read Packer's other novels and this is my favorite.

Later, I met Stacey Cochran - a fellow KindleScout author and picked up a copy of Eddie & Sunny, his latest novel. I'm excited to start reading!
