Joe | 2 comments I read the book in 4th grade I'm a senior now and it just keeps coming to mind. when we read this book the teacher would pass out butterscotch candy and call them something melancholy I think the book had stir to do with this so the main character is a man who as far as I remember lays Bricks for building then he has to go away to war I think veitnam and at the end I think he comes back and that's all I got.

Tab (tabbrown) | 5006 comments You read this book about 8 year ago, correct?
Was this book geared towards children, teens, adults?

Did the book focus of the man's experience in the war? Was he a young man, older man, husband, son, father, etc?

Did a character in the book call butterscotch "[blank] melancholy" and that's why your teacher called it that?

Anything about the cover?

Joe | 2 comments 8 years ya it was more about him having to leave his family my teacher called it melancholy because i think she was trying to teach the word or get us more interested in the book but and i cant remember anything about the cover because it was read to us.
