it was amazing
Read in August, 2007

I've heard this called a British Catcher in the Rye, and although the protagonist isn't nearly as depressed or angst-ridden, the comparison is apt. It's a beautiful, poignant character sketch of a fictional boy who I wished were real so I could be his friend. I loved it.

Chad So true - this book is all about character. OK, you're right; I'm bumping it up from 4 stars to 5.
