I'm still on the fence about this book. While I liked it overall, I didn't feel that it was truly a worthy follow up to Dandelion Wine. The appeal of Dandelion Wine was the innocence conveyed in the book, the very strange feeling of being a child in an uncertain world and the terror that one can only feel during that time. Farewell Summer was harsher, more jarring, and I could have used a bit more of a transition between the two... I'm glad the editor cut it out of the original manuscript.

In addition to this, the ending is also... questionable. I'm not truly certain how I feel about it, or if I ever will know what to make of it. I understand the point of it... but... well, I don't know.
