It’s a heart-felt coming of age story that I believe anyone will enjoy reading, especially the YA fan groups of all ages!
I felt that there where parts of the novel that could have extended to give me a better chances to know the characters, BUT . . .but this novel covered a vast amount of topics in short a time.
The epilogue for the novel gave it a nice ending, though I wish there was a better way for Marcus to let go of his past instead of literally seeing it in flames, even though it’s a symbolic gesture. Marcus had to deal with some serious struggles in a short time to gain the world’s perspective of a man instead of a child. *sigh* I my heartfelt for Marcus the entire time.
I have to say that it’s been This wonderful heartfelt novel when it’s available on September 1st 2016. I’m grateful for the opportunity given to me by James Lorimer & Company.
