My rating: 4 of 5 stars

I am pleased to be able to tell you about a new, clean young adult book that is written by another great Pacific Northwest author. The book is short, easy to read, and completely appropriate (no profanity and no sex)for the younger audience. This will resonate with boys especially (it is a first person narrative by a boy), and I believe girls will like it, too.

I had one issue that truly did bother me (especially in light of the young adult audience). There is a scene in which boys are stealing items. While some consequences do occur, I wish it had been handled differently. Maybe I’m wrong and all young people shoplift at some point. Maybe it’s a rite of passage, but if it is, it is illegal and one I certainly bypassed.

I applaud the author for dealing with all sorts of young adult issues such as separation, aging grandparents, and death. This is a short book that covers a young boy’s summer, and it definitely has its colossal moments.

I was sent a copy of this book in exchange for my honest review. I was not financially compensated, and all opinions are 100 percent mine.
