With each chapter being snippets about the life of Button, his family and friends, there is nothing boring about this story it's all good, very good. From 'babyhood' through to 'adulthood' Buttons story is as real as everyones. Cole Matthews has done an excellent job with his narration and brings life to all of the ups and downs, and important episodes of Buttons growing up. But be warned you will need to keep the Kleenex handy, not just for the tears of sadness, you will need them for the tears of joy too. It's more than safe to say I enjoyed this pleasant and emotional read. I think others will too.

Cole Matthews has written a heartwarming tale of a child growing up. Each chapter has vignettes from a year in the life of Button and his two dads. As you read you will laugh and cry, and feel every emotion in between. And if you don't fall in love with Button, you have no heart. The characters are all well written, with the strengths and flaws of real people. There is enough description to put you in the story's various locales without taking over. The dialogue sounds like real conversations. Growing up is not all sunshine and roses for Button. He has struggles and heart-ache along the way. The story is sweet and yet often thought-provoking. Be sure to follow the "fine print" suggestion and read "1515 Loring Lane" chapter 6 first. It is a prologue telling how Button came to live with his two dads.
