You would never think that a book about the death of a 13-year-old boy would be anything other than tragic, yet Neil Smith manages to create a whimsical and moving story. In his debut novel, "Boo", we are introduced to Oliver 'Boo' Dalrymple, a middle school outcast, who 'wakes up' in Town – a heaven solely populated by those who have passed away at 13. Through his journal, Boo chronicles his experiences in Town with its bizarre idiosyncrasies, and gradually uncovers the events which ultimately lead to his death. From the start I fell in love with Boo – a terribly smart, socially inept boy whose reflections reveal a surprisingly complex character. "Boo" is an intriguing story which will leave you thinking about it long after you’ve finished.

The narrator was freaking awesome at portraying "BOO". This is definitely a book I talk to others about encouraging them to read it.
