I loved this book! I wasn’t sure I could get into a book that is written for ages 10 and up but boy did Mr. Schmidt show me a thing or two. This book produced such strong emotions in me when I was reading it. I actually had trouble falling asleep one night after reading one particular part of the book because I couldn’t stop thinking about it.

I enjoyed the Audubon pictures at the beginning of each chapter and then seeing how they tied in to whatever was going on in that particular chapter.

I loved Doug’s voice! One of my favorite quotes in the book is when Doug was starting Introduction to Poetry in English class… “Why can’t poets just say what they want to say and then shut up?” haha I may be a chump but I love that line! ;)

It’s safe to say I’ll be reading Gary Schmidt again.
