Perfect for fans of We Are All Completely Beside Ourselves and The Unlikely Pilgrimage of Harold Fry.
This is how a family keeps a secret...and how that secret ends up keeping them.
This is how a family lives happily ever after...until happily ever after becomes complicated.
This is how children change...and then change the world.
This is Claude. He's five years old, the youngest of five brothers, and loves peanut butter sandwiches. He also loves wearing a dress, and dreams of being a princess.
When he grows up, Claude says, he wants to be a girl.
Rosie and Penn want Claude to be whoever Claude wants to be. They're just not sure they're ready to share that with the world. Soon the entire family is keeping Claude's secret. Until one day it explodes.
Laurie Frankel's This Is How It Always Is is a novel about revelations, transformations, fairy tales, and family. And it's about the ways this is how it always is: Change is always hard and miraculous and hard again, parenting is always a leap into the unknown with crossed fingers and full hearts, children grow but not always according to plan. And families with secrets don't get to keep them forever.



"A lively and fascinating story of a thoroughly modern family and the giant, multifaceted love that binds them.... Sparkles with wit and wisdom." (Maria Semple, best-selling author of Where'd You Go, Bernadette)
"An intelligent, life-affirming, emotionally charged story." ( Prima)

sehr genossen!

Ich kenne keine kleinen Kinder in meiner Umgebung mit einer ähnlichen Geschichte. Aber ich könnte mir vorstellen, dass sie häufig sehr viel heftiger verlaufen. Dann mag man es wohl auch nicht so gerne hören. Mit dieser recht harmonischen Geschichte habe ich trotzdem das Gefühl, dem Thema näher gekommen zu sein und es hat meine Sicht durchaus beeinflusst.
