Anyway, this will be kind of a like a short review. The beginning didn't really interest me because it started with a description of a boy looking at a gopher hole and then went on describing its surroundings. But I don't know what part of the story was that kept me interested in flipping the pages. Maybe because it was so realisticly portrayed? I'm not sure. It's only about 190 something pages long, but with really small text. I read it in between going to dinner, the mall, etc. The ending was a bit sad, but it was pulled off well. I don't think I've ever accepted a sad ending as much as I did for this book.
Rating: I give it 4/5
Anyway, I'm currently reading ->
Parrot in the Oven, which isn't so bad. I'll let you know my thoughts on it later. Actually, part of my assignment is doing journal entries with thoughts of the passages from it so I'll probably use those.
Anyway, I'm off to read more in the effort of completing my assigned summer work!
