Live To Read
When James' father passes away, he is sent to live with his Uncle Anthony. Along the way, he sits on a train next to this beautiful girl he determines is someone he wants to date. When he finds her Winnie the Pooh book left behind, he knows he must return the book. His Uncle Anthony has a unique way of helping him deal with his "grief" and tasks him with a list of twelve to-dos. Anthony begins at the beginning and slowly makes his way through the list, some by accident and some by seeking the action or person out.
James is an interesting character. He is sullen, stubborn, and determined. He is a bit blind when it comes to girls and has a very interesting social life while with his Uncle. His Uncle Anthony is a different character. He has some secrets that he reveals to James later on in the book that will give the reader that "Aha" moment. The other characters affect James and his development in the book, but do not feature majorly.
The events were interesting, the concept was far from the typical. The reader will enjoy James' sarcastic, caustic nature and take on life. The ending is perfect, the reader will be happy he/she read the book. This book is recommended to young adult/teen readers.
