An extremely detailed story about a young group of friends and the things they go through. It’s watching a “tomboy” struggle with gender normatives and figuring out what life and family is all about.
There are some very funny observations in this story ” …the priest in charge most of the time turned the wine into the blood of Jesus and then the host -a thin, white wafer- into his flesh in front it everyone’s eyes. Yet grown ups don’t believe in monsters.” But over all it didn’t move quick enough to hold my attention and I wasn’t sure where it was all headed.
This is the first book I’ve read by this author and I always appreciate anyone putting pen to paper. This book was just not my cup of tea.
