I read this one for my book club (it's our book for June) and also for a discussion group that will meet next week at the library. This book is part of my state's One Book program, where the Humanities Council picks a book and invites communities all around the state to read and discuss throughout the course of the year. I like the idea of many people in different towns and cities all reading the same book at the same time, and getting together as groups to talk about it, and I want to be a part of that. There is much to discuss in this one. Several people asked me, "What's it about?" while I was reading it. All I would tell them is that it takes place over the summer of 1961 in Minnesota and the story is recalled 40 years later from the perspective of 13-year-old Frank, son of a local minister. The rest you must uncover, like I just did, for yourself. Recommend it? Oh yes, I do.
