it was amazing

This is the follow-up to Sams' book Run with the Horsemen, the story of the boy - Porter L. Osborne, Jr. - growing up on the farm in south Georgia. I remember these books being around our house as I was growing up.
Whisper is about Porter growing up and going off to a fictional Baptist college in Macon. It's supremely well-written, with poignant moments as well as hilarious ones. It's just good, smart summer reading.
