it was ok
bookshelves: fiction, coming-of-age
Read in November, 2009

Over and Under was well written, it flowed well, the characters were realistic, the problem I had with this book was that.. well.. it was just boring. Tucker tried to spice it up with a bit of a mystery, but the fact remains that this is, ultimately, a book about boys being boys, a union strike and all of the crimes associated with it, and a mingling of the politics from the early 70's. Interesting stuff in its own right (I mean, the first I knew of a strike was from watching Newsies as a kid and I must have watched that movie over 50 times... then again, maybe it was just for Christian Bale).

It is well-written though, and it definitely is a book to read if you enjoy the coming of age type stories. It just wasn't all that interesting to me.
