I picked this book for book club and I'm a little disappointed that I did so. The description of the book seemed to allude to so much more than I was given. I feel shortchanged. The first half of this book had me chomping at the bit for more - the dynamic between June and her Uncle Finn was orchestrated beautifully. As the book is set in the 80s when there wasn't much information about AIDS, the ignorance showed by the characters was exactly as I remembered it from that time. As the book went on, I found it disturbing that June was in love with Finn and she was borderline possessive. Also disturbing was how Finn's lover was trying to have a relationship with June because in essence, they each had no one. If it didn't seem too creepy, it would have been nice to read about. There were some touching moments but overall, a 30 something gay man who just lost the love of his life trying to have a relationship with the goddaughter of his lover even though he knows her family despises him is...odd. June was way immature and it didn't seem she was all that bright. Plus, her behavior was sadly hermit like and I had to wonder if she didn't have bigger issues. Big sister, Greta, was a total bitch. The author tried to set up how and why she was the way she was but it didn't click for me. But then I admit a little bias because I have a sister who was and still is like that. She only got worse with age and I haven't spoken to her in years so trying to like Greta just didn't happen for me. As for their father, he was a total henpecked husband - an automaton who went to work and had zero skill as a parent unless it was to tell the girls to keep quiet. Not even when he had an open discussion with June did I feel he was really trying. The mother, on the other hand, well, she was ridiculously ignorant - and borderline abusive in her passive aggressive way. STOP HERE IF YOU DIDN'T FINISH THE BOOK.....

It all fell apart for me when Greta drove to Manhattan so that June could get Toby from the hospital after she got him into legal trouble. As a former New Yorker, Greta driving on a learner's permit from Westchester is hilarious because most seasoned drivers find it difficult to traverse Manhattan by car. Also, June, being 14 or 15, I can't exactly remember, just waltzed out of Bellevue hospital with an AIDS patient and brought him to their home. All of a sudden, her parents are open to Toby and all ill will is forgotten because suddenly he's about to croak on their couch. It just seemed like it ended all too abruptly and the resolution of the characters didn't seem to be there. It was well written, I will say that, which was why I was able to finish it.

I'm about 45% of the way through (according to my Kindle) and I just don't think I am going to be able to finish this book. I absolutely HATE Greta. I too have an older sister, we were close when we were little, yeah she got mean, but Greta is REALLY mean and evil. Always saying awful things to June and everytime she had any dialogue with her in the book I found myself cringing, like how is this even believeable? How could someone be so evil? I thought my sister was bad, but come on nobody is THAT terrible to their sister ALL THE TIME! Are they? She needs meds. I might come back to this book, but I find the secret relationship between June and Toby highly inappropriate. If Finn really did want June to know Toby, he would have found a way to introduce them long ago. They spent so much alone time together, it seems highly unlikely that he wouldn't have told her he was gay and had a boyfriend. Blah. Not impressed.

Beautifully written, this is the story of June, who is 14, and Finn, her famous uncle, a renowned painter, and Toby, his lover. More broadly, it is the story of June's sister agrees and their relationship, as well as the relationship June's mother had with her brother, Finn. Told in June's voice, it is also the story of AIDS in the 2980s when misconceptions were rife, and being gay was something one whispered about. It is also a story about loss, of the relationship between siblings, between friends, and the changing relationship one has with one's parents. As lyrical as the prose was, there were times when the tension dragged a little bit for me, but I absolutely read on because despite having a really good idea where it was going, it was all about the journey. I never had an uncle like Finn, nor a tense relationship with my sister, but for a short while I could imagine exactly what it would have been like. Sometimes the Milky Way comes into your life and twinkles just for you.
