    Quick, pleasant read

    This is a novella so it didn't take very long to read. It's about a young teenage boy who is spending the summer with his cousins. He gets ill and during his illness, bonds with a younger female cousin who is a prodigy, she is a talented painter. He doesn't really fit in with the male cousins who tease him mercilessly but he ends up betraying his female cousin in his attempt at fitting in with the other boys. He tells the story from the point of view of an adult looking back. I really liked the story and would have enjoyed a full novel with these characters. We get hints of what happened to the boy and girl as they grew up a bit when one last encounter is described when they are in their late teens/early 20s

    Quiet but powerful

    Finely drawn and compelling, "The Sickroom" is a quiet but powerful coming of age novella that is sure to delight.
