One of my favourite books about growing up. About an adopted boy trying to fit into his new life, who falls in love with his neighbour. Chock full of adventures and good clean fun. Set in the West Indies, it describes a somewhat typical childhood about growing up in the islands.

Reading the book was like watching a Jamaican Creole-language romantic drama anime. I loved and read the book as a whole, though I currently remember some parts from the book. When I read the book, the F.U.N. song "Some Nights" played in my head.

This was a great book , he is a great author I read all his books . When I read this book I could actually imagine all the fun and adventures he had the good old days when you had the river to bath in the summer. The book is lovely it give you a feeling of living in the country Caribbean style

Daphne had a crush on Beppo all along, hence the reason for treating him so horridly.
