    " He has a great style. This was his first novel that he never intended to be published, and yet theres still this great clarity and prose in his writing. "

    " honestly I will give anything by Capote 5 stars. It isn't anything compared to In Cold Blood but Good Reads doesn't provide me with 100 stars, so I can't properly rank it. But anyway Summer Crossing is a nice summer read done Capote style, meaning in addition to an exciting plot there is also excellent character development, realism, and genius prose. "
