    Kritters Ramblings

    A short little read that was interesting, but just didn't hit me right. A story of a boy trying to find himself. He realizes that his family isn't perfect and how that affects who he is and will become.

    I can't pinpoint where exactly I didn't fall in love with this book - but for some reason, I just didn't enjoy. To keep it short and simple, I think there is an audience for it, but maybe not an adult female, maybe this book is more for a younger male audience - so I would send this book off to that group

    so so

    I bought this book for my middle school library. It's ok but I can't think of any students I REALLY should recommend it to. It's kinda dry in the middle and I think it's an example of reviewers who recommended it because they THINK students should like it. Personally, I don't think kids will care for it much.
