really liked it
Read from April 10 to 11, 2012

I first read A Separate Peace in high school. I have found reading it again without all of the necessary analysis makes it far more enjoyable. I could see the larger picture better than having to discuss every page and action. Gene struggles with his general teenage angst on top of having to hold onto a terrible secret. Phineas tries so hard to make the best of every situation and they both lean on each other for support. Can friendship really overcome anything?
