it was amazing
bookshelves: classics, kids-lit
Read in January, 1984

I am basing the 5 stars on my memory of the book from 8th grade, so go easy. It was one of the first books I read that was not a kiddie story but still involved children as the main characters. It was also a time in my life when I was really starting to be interested in politics, so it just clicked with me. I still remember the passage about how the "curtain" in his mind would close and he couldn't remember what he was going to say. I feel like that all the time to this day.
