it was amazing

Book club pick!

I absolutely adored this book. It was completely charming. The titular nerd--Ambrose--reminded me so much of myself! We both had a love for Scrabble at an early age (I organized Scrabble tournaments in 5th and 6th grade during rainy recesses when we weren't allowed outside to play) and we both had purple pants that we proudly wore! (What WAS I thinking...)

Even without those similarities, Ambrose and the supporting cast is truly engaging and it makes for a great, quick read.

Rebecca Snort...you said "titular"...(which is a great Scrabble word, by the way)!
