"This is a solid 4.5 for me, a middle-grade mix of Harry Potter's magic and the paranormal oddities of Gravity Falls wrapped around the story of a boy scout learning how to fit in and find friends in a strange new town. It sets itself up well as th..." Read more of this review »
Arlo Finch in the Lake of the Moon by John August

The best chapters make up for a few that drag on (Russian, I'm looking at you). I found the early chapters on Thai, Swahili and Indian languages I wasn't familiar with the most interesting.

The final chapter on English is a bit of a disappointment. W

“There's a time when a man needs to fight and a time when he needs to accept that his destiny's lost, the ship has sailed and that only a fool will continue. The truth is I've always been a fool.”

“That's sort of growing up, I guess. Forgetting the things you used to love.”
