wonderful coming of age story
10 October 1999 | by (new jersey) – See all my reviews

This is a wonderful coming of age story. I am sure many identified with some part of the story, either leaving home for the first time, the loss of a parent, or first love. You really cared about the people in the story, and I found myself wondering what the future would bring for them.
