it was amazing

LOVE this book! It's about what it means to be guys and have a friend, camouflaged in a journey story. If you're a reluctant reader, be aware that the story takes place in Russia in WWII, so it helps to know that Leningrad was under siege by the German army and thousands died of starvation before the siege was lifted. Other than that, you don't need to know much - you just need to be open to a cowardly narrator and an immensely annoying sidekick (though there's a bit of question as to which one of them is the sidekick!). Don't skip the first chapter, though it feels like you can. It sets up the story and makes it possible to identify several of the characters as they occur in the story.
