French Leave by Anna Gavalda

I find that Gavalda’s writing flows effortlessly and this novel of hers is no exception. It tells a simple, yet charming story of four siblings who run away from a family wedding in order to spend some time hanging out together like old times. Their banter and memories are heartfelt and believable. The downside is that the whole thing is rather short (more like a novella) and feels like it ends abruptly.

    I’m looking forward to reading this one. I love her writing because it’s so effortless and yet satisfying. I do find many of her stories end abruptly.
