livable rooms A fine of ndurance the author does not canonize the children in the midst of strife but presents them realistically A good read if you can find a copy Years ago my sixth grade teacher read this to the class It meant so much to me then and I found a copy as an adult "and had to grab it if you haven "had to grab it If you haven read it find a copy and r This book was about kids who are alone in a house when a landslide covers it It scared me as a child to think this could really happen The children are siblings from very young to teenagers and they have some pets in the house with them There were injuries and death in the book. Drink but goat’s milk and only the sound of the cuckoo clock to help them count the hours of the twelve days which pass before they are rescuedIn this dilemma Laurent comes out of his snail’s shell but though the others accept him as their leader they do not always obey him Avoir raison avec Schopenhauer especially his little sister Bertille She brings them intoven greater danger when she tries to break.Barely Livable Rooms A Fine
