really liked it
Read in November, 2009

Great story about a 5th grade Italian American boy and his experiences at parochial school during the Christmas season. Very unlike all other Wally Lamb books. No really disturbed or abused people. Just a normal family during the 1960s. It has several funny moments and the narrator sounds like the child he is supposed to be.

Jessica Well said Rena. I agree. This was a fun read after all the heavier reading I have been doing lately. Also, I attended Catholic school for most of my life, and although it was based on a different generation, a lot of it sounded famliar to me. I think I will be passing this book on to my family.
