Such a nice book to end the summer with.
So many favorite lines, but I particularly loved this:
(Aaron musing about moving into his sister's house)
But if I just showed up with no explanation and asked for my old room back, she would think I was having a nervous breakdown or something. She would turn all motherly and there-there. She would be thrilled.
(the "thrilled" in italics. Perfect.)
Aaron's asides are spot-on. That "bear in mind she was fond of talking" sounded so authentic! Can't you just hear somebody saying that?
I love what one Goodreads reviewer said about the brevity--
That some readers had complained about it being too short.
"So read it twice."
I just may.
