My review

rating: 5 of 5 stars
There are still tears in my eyes. This wistful and wonderful book about making mistakes, trusting, forgiving and loving told from the perspective of a 13 year old boy was one I’ll be thinking about for a long time. I read the advance reading copy – it won’t publish until later this summer.

Just a note. If you hear about books and find yourself jotting down the titles and authors on a table napkin, a post-it, an old envelope, a notebook or writing it on your palm (and I don’t mean pilot), consider joining Good Reads, a website that allows you to easily keep track of books you’d like to read as well as books you’ve already read. It also will give you reviews of books you are considering and enables you to write and share your own. The website is goodreads.com and it is a free site. I finally have all my book ephemera in one place and I’m so pleased!
