    " What's the big effing secret?! Just TELL people! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Connie Reichley | 1/30/2014

    " It was funny,sad,smart and entertaining. I loved the way it was written. I will recommend it for book club. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Michele | 1/28/2014

    " This is an enjoyable read. The writing is vivid, witty and bittersweet. The author nails every stage of growing up. My only let down was that the ending was heavily foreshadowed, so i expected the resolution to come sooner. Although the second half contained some great scenes, I think the main story line went on a bit too long and it started reminding me of Murakami's Norwegian Wood. In some ways that hurt the delightfulness of the vignettes in the second half because they seem out of context. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jackson | 1/20/2014

    " surprise and sad and some nice visions (and some icky ones, too) "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Krysta | 1/18/2014

    " This book was TERRIBLE!!!! Think boy loves girl, girl rejects boy, boy refuses to accept rejection, girl self-hates because she has to reject boy, and no one just gets over it! The main character is a rude and angsty boy, while his female love interest punishes herself physically and mentally for being 'the cause' of his mal-adjusted behavior. The characters were pathetic and did I mention the book was terrible?!??! "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Jennifer Arnold | 1/15/2014

    " Meh. Mediocre coming-of-age novel - man, those Powell's review a days are not working out for me lately. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Kelli | 1/15/2014

    " Well written. Story was interesting and rolled along at a good pace but took a very VC Andrews twist somewhere there in the last 1/4 of the book. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Spike Grobstein | 1/15/2014

    " I read this book a couple years back and occasionally have things remind me of bits and pieces of the story. I've been trying to piece enough of the story together in my head to remember the title, and now that I've found it, I think I need to read it again. It was kinda fucking awesome, even if it was a total bummer. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jessica | 1/14/2014

    " I'd be lying if I said I didn't enjoy this book somewhat but the only reason I stayed mildly interested and kept reading was because i had a bunch of flights to sit through and needed some entertainment. This book had a lot of potential, I was looking for some gut wrenching, heart breaking, obsessive love story. But instead what I got was an obsessive boy who barely does anything about his feelings and just lets life go on without really living. There was some humor in the book and it was at those parts that I was enjoying it. I give it 3 stars for mild entertainment mixed with a few laughs. I don't think I'll read anything else he writes. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Joy | 1/10/2014

    " Just read an article about Evison in the Seattle Times. He's from Bainbridge Island and spent about 20 years in dead-end jobs before he wrote this book which is going to be a movie. "Let that be a lesson for the kids," he said. In other words never give up! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Amanda | 11/8/2013

    " Finished one last book for 2012. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Edna | 11/5/2013

    " Different--really liked the experience. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Sonja | 11/3/2013

    " I was thinking this was going to be funny, and it was ... yet also intense and a bit distressing. I enjoyed it immensely and found Evison's quirky characters to be very appealing. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Judy Bart | 10/24/2013

    " Another quirky coming-of-age tale about a boy obsessed with his stepsister, but the protagonist was so charming and candid that it made the story enjoyable. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Stacy | 10/7/2013

    " This book made me want to cry, made me laugh out loud and made me finish it as fast as possible. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Tony DuShane | 2/26/2013

    " this book rules so far and might be my favorite book of 2008. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Rita | 5/27/2012

    " I liked the writing better than the story. I figured out the "plot" early on, but enjoyed the characters and descriptions so much it was still well worth finishing. 3.5 stars is probably more appropriate. (I listened to the book and the reader was good). "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Audrey | 12/23/2011

    " I would have given four or five stars to a better-edited version of this book. It rambled, especially the second half. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jill Logan | 11/20/2011

    " I wanted more resolution at the end, but kind of glad I didn't get it! Definitely an enjoyable read "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Adrienne | 6/9/2011

    " A great book by a local author. A sort of coming of age, gen x saga about love and the complexities within. Loved the family dynamics and the internal struggle of several characters. Though not the most uplifting of stories, it's well-written and easy to sink into. Very true to life! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Perrel | 4/29/2011

    " Quirky, funny, heart-breaking, thoughtful and thought-provoking. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Connie | 4/1/2011

    " It was funny,sad,smart and entertaining. I loved the way it was written. I will recommend it for book club. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Kammy | 3/22/2011

    " This book is OK. I just didn't think the story was worth telling. It was too dark, too dragged on. I did like Evison's writing style, and I would give him another shot. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Judy | 3/17/2011

    " Another quirky coming-of-age tale about a boy obsessed with his stepsister, but the protagonist was so charming and candid that it made the story enjoyable. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Paul | 2/6/2011

    " OK story, some fun characters, didn't really get the point of it all, to be honest. Not all of the characters' actions ran true. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Paulette | 12/18/2010

    " Very good novel about growing up and being compulsively in love. "

    " Loved it throughout, but wished for more at the story's
    ending. "
