just finished reading the wonderful coming of age book that i couldnt put down! An excellent read, it grabs you right away and holds onto the surprising ending. The authors other books are just as gripping. Read her books you will love them!

This is such a good story. It is a coming of age, love, thriller all in one.
It has been awhile since the ending of a book made me cry. This one did it for me.

Although I found this book to be a little slow at first one the pace picked up it was a fascinating story. The story is told from the viewpoint of a middle-school aged boy which I really, really liked. A love story between two adults from a young man who's sexual identity is virtually non-existent was quite refreshing and funny.

I didn't see the movie and I probably won't see it because I don't want to ruin what I have envisioned in my mind. Great story. I'd recommend it to any of my friends.

I really liked this book much more than I thought I would. I really related to the mum's faults and unapologetic attitude and I think Kate Winset was a very good choice to pay her in the movie.

This book was much better than I anticipated - I only read it because it was my book club's choice this summer. The characters' decisions and the resulting consequences stayed with me for days.

Make sure you have a few hours of uninterrupted time when you start reading this book. You won't want to put it down.

I loved this book. Beautifully written. Likable characters. I thought the relationship developing between Adele and Frank was lovely. It's one of those books that you know isn't going to end well... but I actually really liked the ending. A great read.
