This book is the November selection of my library's "Forever YA" book club. I had never heard of this book or Jeff Zentner, and I would probably not have stumbled across this book if it hadn't been a club selection. Now I'm an instant fan of Zentner's.Lydia, Dill, and Travis are outcasts at their Fo...

In his bio, Zentner states that he “wanted to write about young people who struggle to lead lives of dignity and find beauty in a forgotten unglamorous place.” And wow, did he succeed.

This is a good read for teens, but I enjoyed it as an adult and recommend it for both age groups.

I really don't quite know what to make of this one. A lot of the bloggers and reviewers I follow, apart from a small handful, all seem to rave about how brilliant this book is. Apparently, I am in the black sheep brigade on this one. I just didn't get it. Which almost made me feel bad because the...

I seriously loved this novel! I loved the relationship between Travis, Dill and Lydia. Although they didn’t see eye-to-eye all the time, their relationship seemed genuine and they each brought something to the group that the others seemed to be lacking. It’s their last year of high school and the...
