I just finished BREWSTER by Mark Slouka. First time in my life - ever - that I sat straight up while reading and gasped, "Oh my God!" I also cried - a first for a novel. It's so well written - I was getting up in the middle of the night to keep reading it. Truly loved it.

Brewster is a beautiful, heartbreaking coming-of-age novel about the friendship between two teenage boys, Jon and Ray, each enduring tragically difficult circumstances in their respective homes until they can escape. Whether they will, and whether Jon will realize the truth of Ray's situation, makes for a suspenseful narrative that unfolds at a deft pace in taut, graceful, and powerful prose. The reader knows he's hurtling to a painful finish, but he can't imagine what it will look like. Jon is a long-distance runner on the school track team and his running, his races, serve as an allegory for the other races the characters are running for their lives. The percolating and sometimes explosive anger and confusion of the late 1960s is perfectly evoked, as are the rhythms and cadence of the speech of teen boys, similarly angry and confused. Because it is primarily about male characters, and narrated by one as well, it is a book that would be appealing to male readers searching for good contemporary fiction. There isn't a single thing in this novel that rings false. Even though it *will* break the reader's heart, it's wonderful reading.

I believe this book is for sophisticated adults and i did not understand a thing going on which makes every one figure out i am only a fifteen year old teen. The book i have to admit has a very plot through so congratelations to the writter
