WHAT I LIKED
Any time I receive an ARC I am super thankful and appreciative. Admittedly, I was pretty absent from the blogging world for a while, as I had a baby in March and didn’t have a ton of time for reading. I apologize sincerely for this to the author who graciously sent me an advanced copy of this book! Thank you, thank you, thank you!
I finally got around to reading it, as it was my “at school” book for a while. My students get reading time once a week and I like to demonstrate good reading during that time, too. We had a long weekend this past week and I was able to finish it!
It touches on many topics that are relevant today and informative. While the story opens with young Jeremy, I do believe it’s meant for an older audience in terms of enjoyment. These topics include taxes, health care, family issues, and more.
This is really a story of resilience, of a story growing up and holding onto innocence when the harsh realities of life are trying to take him down.
WHAT I DID NOT LIKE
I am hesitant to ever bash a book that was sent to me free of charge, but I’ll say that in order for the story to draw me in, I had to be in a particular reading mood. This is not a story I would read if I was looking for an escape from my every day life, as it’s pretty heavy. It’s better for a an afternoon at a coffee shop or wrapped in a blanket.
