    True Friendship and Strong Relationships

    Although the opening of this young adult fiction book has a powerful hold on the dark shadows of teenage suicide, I feel that, the novel is really about the discovery of true friendship, and strong relationship ties. Maureen 'Mo' Justice, Jaytee Warner, and Otis Fudge are childhood friends and neighbors. They live in Deer Lake, Colorado, a small farm town, where Buck Justice, Mo's father, feels that she is safe during his long absences. Pody Slate, Casswal Martinez and Leonard Byrdsong join them as the story progress, each under special circumstances, and the group of teenagers is in for an unforgettable summer Paul Wagner has a knack for creating true to life characters that move along the joys and perils of life, helping each other through trials and triumphs. I found myself totally immersed in the story, as if I was among them sharing their growing up experiences. The one thing I especially like about Paul's novel, is the way his characters deal with death, loss, illness, disappointment and prejudice. The strong bond of friendship that keeps the youngsters together, through thick and thin, is admirable. One of my favorite characters was Pody Slate, the entrepreneur of the bunch. He is fearless, aggressive and lots of fun. When I finished reading this book, I immediately put it on my Christmas list. I also recommended it to my family and friends. It is definitely the kind of book teenagers will enjoy reading, but adults who haven't forgotten what it was like to be teenagers, will definitely love it.
