liked it

I enjoyed how very detailed and descriptive the style of writing was. howeverm as a middle school teacher, I find that it could almost be so much detail that it distracted from the story. I feel as if middle school students would have a difficult time connecting to and enjoying the story. The story telling aspect of the book felt a tad bit sloppy and unorganized, which made it difficult to maintain interest at some points in the story.

Overall, I loved reading about the daily, varied expierences of small town America. Steinback told his story of small town America in a very open and raw way. Many passionate and worthwhile quotes throught the book as well.
