I Love You Too, Daddy is a short story at roughly 80 pages but oh boy does it pack a punch. The story follows Jason from being a baby through to adult hood and is told almost in diary style.
Jason suffers a lot of loss throughout his life and you’d need a heart of stone to not feel for him. My heart ached for him and I’ll admit I did find it difficult to read due to having lost my 7 year old daughter to cancer but I needed to know how things would progress for him and would he find happiness?
Jason’s bond with his brother and Dad were very special but I really felt for his mum, she suffered yet sort of got pushed to the side lines.
I Love You Too, Daddy is a story that is sad but also gives hope and it has a few surprises which I didn’t see coming. It’s a fairy quick read but it’s a story that will stay with the reader, just make sure you have some hankies at the ready.
