it was amazing
bookshelves: read-in-2011

This may end up on my top 5 books this year. We'll see what else I uncover in the next four months, but wow.

There was something beautifully refreshing about Ben Wolf. His voice was entertaining and sarcastic and honest, and I could really sympathize as the person in a family who feels they have to take care of everyone else. I adored his thirst for knowledge during his final year of life, his zest for the truth of things (even as he was keeping the truth of himself from others), and especially his relationship with his brother Cody.

I shouldn't have read this book before bed, because it kept me up, and then it had me sobbing over the last few pages. Just loved it.
