February by Lisa Moore

I read a good piece of Lisa Moore's February yesterday and I can't wait to get back to it after I finish work today. Although the subject matter is serious, surprisingly, I don't feel sad or down while reading it. The interaction between John and his mother Helen during the birth of his baby sister is particularly poignant.
