Would you live your life differently if you were told at a young age the date of your death? Would believing that this date is accurate lead you to make good or bed decisions? This novel explores this and what these four siblings do with their lives after a fortune teller provides them their dates of death. It's a coming of age novel with the added twist of knowing this death date. I really enjoyed the first two stories Simon and Klara. For Daniel and Varya, it was a different kind of reading enjoyment but it's steadied out. I'm glad I read it but there was just a tad lacking at the story's conclusion, but the story has stayed with me and some questions remain. My questions would require a spoiler alert so I'll just say that I got a lot out of the story.
