The prologue and epilogue could be skipped and the story would not lose much of anything. I do recommend reading the author's note and looking at the pictures. I think the most important thing about this book is the message to model the practice peace and understanding; and to model that for your friends, kids, and really anyone around you.

Lives in Florida and NYC. Starts off with the fathers death. Then when story begins its an expositional dump. DNF
