Real and one of my favorite listens

A touching, tactful, and entertaining novel. The plot is very simple, and it revolves around a 13-year old, his family, his dog, and a friend. The narrator does a fantastic job; I especially liked his rendering of the mother, which kept me entertained through the first half of the novel, where little seems to happen. The essays at the end of the story helped me locate the novel in its context. I wish I could have read this as a teenager, and reading it now pleased the teenage inside of me immensely.
