Great Coming of Age Story
Reviewed in the United States on September 7, 2021
Just like the summers of my childhood, I didn't want this book to end. It captured that feeling of being a kid when magic was real and the world was a mystery. It is about a boy and his brother who are growing up in the 80's, and they are excited for Return of the Jedi to come out. It's told as a series of stories throughout this summer. It has a dark tone and there are some unsettling things going on. As I read it, I felt like I was alongside the characters, experiencing these events with them. I would be lying if I said there were parts of this book that didn't make me cry. Brilliant book.
