    7. Enchantingly warm this broken yet wonderfully relatable family story has spot on voices I m in love with Zac s 10 year old persona as he was an ideal protagonist and nostalgic As the characters come into focus, they develop into a kaleidoscope that s tangible and familiar You experience each of their emotions from heart wrenching fat kid memories, to equal parenting pangs from an adult perspective It felt deliciously like About A Boy and Dear Frankie with far deeper storytelling and heartwarming [...]

    8. I enjoyed this easy read I especially liked the way the story unfolds and is told through 3 characters from 3 generations of the family It was a good way to see the perspective of each family member on past events that had shaped their family dynamics, as well as those unfolding that would change everything in their family.

    9. I hardly ever like the endings of books but this ending was really good The whole book was well written, with the three different narrators each having a well formed, unique voice There was just the right amount of suspense and shock, and overall it was just a really nice read.

    10. Absolutely love this book Ms Regan captures the interaction between the family members perfectly My favorite character is Zac She has managed to truly get inside his mind and thought process I was hooked from the first chapter Looking forward to reading of her work.

    11. Good read for young readers Heart touching story of a boy that is bullied and the hidden truth about why he doesn t have a dad.

    12. Katy Regan s writing is effortlessly emotional and authentic, and BIG LITTLE LOVE had me hooked from the first page Zac s voice is wonderful vulnerable and tough and entirely convincing It s a heartfelt novel about love, family, and self belief, and I loved it.
