it was amazing

This novel is so beautiful and tender. It seems too easy to label this a "coming of age story". I think this book is about longing, and memory. And the details are, this book is about two 15 yr old girls in NY, who work for an amusement park and are best friends. The things they do, the people they meet, the conversations they have don't matter! What matters is how perfectly and gorgeously Lorrie Moore describes. And for another thing, she's funny and clever as hell. Read this book. Go out to your independent bookstore and read this damn book.
