Really appealing characters. The sweet story reminded me of another favorite - The Cardturner by Sacher.
I will skip across the top of the plot and characters, otherwise I will sink us in the details that Nick relates in a disarming manner in the book.
Nick narrates a compressed space of time when he faces crises all around. He has badly broken his leg, his grossly overweight father has literally walked out- as in walking to Manhattan to jump start some kind of change in his own life, his friend, the Scoot is dying, his brother is leaving for college...
In a fresh voice, Nick tells of Scoot's friend Jaycee's quest (Nick gets roped in) to get a rare edition Of Mice and Men to Scoot's long absent dad. In the tradition of quests everywhere the duo find more than they were seeking.
Completely charming.
