4.0 out of 5 stars Charming, quirky, evocative
The voice I enjoyed so much in Rebecca Chace's "Chautauqua Summer" is back -- but this time she is a (fictional) teenager, Annie Edwards. I think the reviewers (above) were unduly harsh on this novel ... yes, this territory has been mined before, but Chace has a uniquely charming, quirky voice. If you're a fan of "Chautauqua" or her essays in the...

2.0 out of 5 stars Promiscuous drivel
I had read lots of good things about this book, but was sorely disappointed--so much so that I abandoned the book three-quarters of the way through; I just didn't care enough about the characters to stick it out. If you like stories about eight graders having lots of promiscuous sex, doing drugs and experiencing heaps o' disillusionment with their screwed-up parents...

4.0 out of 5 stars ..., July 23, 2002
By A Customer
This review is from: Capture the Flag: A Novel (Hardcover)
I am not easy too please when it comes too books, i read alot but like, very few of the books i read. In a piece of writing, it really takes something special to touch me . THIS BOOK DID THAT, when i read this book i was almost immediately transported in to the world of this charector. The author creates a coming of age tale that hits home with real and brunt honesty that so many other coming of age stories lack.
the plot is not what makes this book so special, but rather the charectors. This is a curl-up-in-your-bed-and-dont-put-the-book-down-till-your-through kind of book, which is excactly how a good book should be.
