    Hardcover Closed Doors Epub ´ closed book, doors kindle, Closed Doors KindleAs seen on my blog It has been proven time and again what a powerful literary move it is to describe tragedy through a child's perspective This is the second book in which Lisa O'Donnell has used the innocent and untainted honesty of a child's point of view to tell her story She was once again hugely successful with Closed Doors but I wasn't as blown away this time around Michael was an entertaining narrator but there was much left to be desiredMichael's mother has suffered at the hands of a heartless monster one who's unseen presence has consumed all sense of normalcy in his family His father feels helpless; his grandmother the self appointed mediator Michael begins his narrative as an 11 year old spy one who's constantly listening at doors and eavesdropping from the top of the stairs He catches bits of inf
