The One Hundred Years of Lenni and Margot by Marianne Cronin




Reviewed by Laura


            This book tells the story of 17 year-old Lenni and 83 year-old Margot who meet in a hospital where both are waiting to die. Please don’t let that sentence deter you from reading this wonderful book! Lenni and Margot meet in the newly acquired Art Room of the hospital and strike up a friendship. As they grow closer, Lennie realizes that, between them, they have lived 100 years, so they begin to paint a picture of a memory for each year of their lives. The best part is that they also get to tell the story of what it represents. Some pages are hilarious, some are heartbreaking, but each and every one is a jewel. I can’t recommend this book highly enough! I laughed and cried through every delicious moment.
