Read in February, 2011

I have now read everything Alison McGhee has written, save her children's and pictures books. She is definately a favorite author of mine. Snap is one of her two young adult novels. What I love most about her writing is the authenticity she brings to her young narrator's voices. I find that many author's aren't able to capture a child's voice, and the funny way children have of looking at the world. I love that she acknowledges that children are wondering about big questions and struggling to answer them as much as adults are, just with less life experience, and that she grapples with whether that abbreviated experience is always a limitation, or not.
