This was a beautiful and amazing book, I thought I was going to give it a 4 and smiled to myself when I saw I had clicked 5 stars.
This book gave me a better understanding of rural America in the 1960s and I was surprised to see race was addressed in this book. I think President Trump should read this book, even though it was published in 1990, Cory’s dad says the KKK “are a bunch of scared people who want to turn time backward.” That phrase has a strong resonance with “Make America Great Again.”
I loved the writing style, the story was written by a poet with the soul of a child.

I truly hated to finish this book.
Definitely, a page turner.
From the days of innocence passed,
through the eyes of inquisitive young boys, a terrific read.
You'll thank me ;)

This is my absolute favorite book ever. I have read it nearly once a year. I laughed and I cried and it ended and I just wanted more.

Surreal. Modern age fairy tale with teeth.
