it was amazing
Read in January, 2009

I loved this historical novel set in 1979 for its realistic yet affectionate depiction of southern Indiana, for its enjoyable and even funny depiction of boyhood friendships that last forever, and for its bittersweet depiction of first loves. I am not much of a fan of shooting as a hobby, but I loved that the two boys in this book both receive rifles for Christmas after successfully completing several weeks of a gun safety course in which they impress the pants off their city slicker classmates with their shooting skills. I also loved roaming the woods and caves around their small town with them. I received a copy of this book from the publisher (thanks!) and will be donating it to the YA collection of my public library. I can think of several teens I would like to suggest it to.
