it was amazing
bookshelves: adored

I absolutely adore this book! I first discovered it when I was about 14. It was an early edition, bound in pink cloth - I can still see it in my head. I got my friends hooked on it, and we took turns checking it out from the library until we literally wore the cover off, and the library had to re-bind it. Later I got my own copy of the new edition, but I was annoyed - parts of the text were changed, and the boys smoke in the dressing room instead of chewing gum. On the whole, I prefer the older edition, but if you can't get your hands on it, read what you can find - it'll still be wonderful!

The story encourages children to live their dreams, and delightfully portrays a group of children pursuing their goals, regardless of their feasibility. I loved how it reminded me of my own friends, and how realistic the children were. This book inspired me.
