This was a "PKK Bookclub" read, which means I read it with my three boys, ages 13 and 11 (the twins). As a lukewarm fan of Ally Condie (really liked Matched, but the next two in the trilogy declined sequentially; I never finished the third book), we read this only because Ms. Condie visited the boys' middle school and sold them the book. I am delighted to report that this book was - GOOD! It deals with death, autism (2 different ways), coming of age and teen-age friendships. Against a lovingly literate backdrop of a Shakespeare Summer Festival, the protagonist grapples with all of the above topics in an endearing journey through her first summer without her dad and her older (autistic) brother. This is a wonderful book for adults and young adults alike.

What a wonderful story. We enjoyed it deeply. Theater, friendship, growing up and coping with loss are explored in a powerfully gentle way in this warm story.
