My name is Calvin Sinclair, I'm eleven years old and I have a confession… I killed my brother. It's the summer before grade six and Calvin Sinclair is bored to tears. He's recently moved from a big city to a small town and there's nothing to do. It's hot, he has no friends and the only kid around is his six-year-old brother, Sammy, who can barely throw a basketball as high as the hoop. Cal occupies his time by getting his brother to do almost anything: from collecting ants to doing Calvin's chores. And Sammy is all too eager - as long as it means getting a "Level" and moving one step closer to his brother's Eagle status. When Calvin meets Aleta Alvarado, a new girl who shares his love for Goosebumps books and adventure, Sammy is pushed aside. Cal feels guilty but not enough to change. At least not until a diagnosis causes things at home to fall apart and he's left wondering whether Sammy will ever complete his own journey… From Ant to Eagle.

What can I say! From Ant to Eagle was ...2017年8月24日 - 已在美国亚马逊上发表
What can I say! From Ant to Eagle was a heart warming and a delightful read. Told through the eyes of a young boy and his relationship with his little brother. I shouldn't say more for fear of spoiling the story for the next reader, but I guarantee it's worth your while!
EXCELLENT short read for adult book clubs despite being written for ages 10 and up.2018年1月15日 - 已在美国亚马逊上发表
Excellent book. Now nominated for the prestigious Canadian "SilverBirch Award 2018. This is an excellent read for young adults, adults, book clubs, bereavement groups, Palliative care groups. It is sad, yet uplifting. You will cry, smile and laugh while wishing the book would not end.? (Movie material? )

Awesome read about life, brothers, illness, parents, and even death. I found the book stunning in it's details, the inner conflicts of a family, and the mind of an young boy. I highly recommend this for YA as well as all adults!

Not an easy book to read, but not easy to put down either. A bittersweet tale of brotherly love, life and loss. I highly recommend it.
