I think the only reason why this book didn't end up with 5 stars is because in the middle, I started to get bored. My favorite parts of the book were when the setting was in Washington. The parts about Everett in Canada, Irwin in Vietnam, and Peter in India, while informative to where they all ended up, seemed to drag just a bit. I kind of wanted to hit the fast forward button to when they interacted as a family, not when they were isolated in these foreign countries. Otherwise I LOOVVEEED it.
