I first read this book 35 years ago, when I was in 7th grade.
Joann M. Hnat
I'd recommend this book to anyone who wants to remember the intensity of our younger selves or to share with your own children.
Tamara da Silva
And you'll never look at a chicken the same way again, either!

This was one of the first novels I read back in 7th grade. (I had to sneak to the library to get it, I wasn't allowed to read novels) It touched me in so many ways. Most profoundly by the sense that others had the same or similar feelings and hopes, dreams, and fears that I did. I'd recommend this book to anyone who wants to remember the intensity of our younger selves or to share with your own children.

When I first read this book I was baffled by why I loved it so much. The story line seems basic and the plot is conventional, but the characters--they are incredible. The author creates a hero and heroine that draw you to the book time and again. I can't help but read it at least once a month, just to remind myself why I like chickens. Andrea Rasmussen

I've read this book at least 50 times, and enjoyed it every time. McKay has crafted a wonderful story about growing up in the 60s in small-town America .A great piece of "real life" I highly recommend this book.

Format: Paperback
This book was my "Catcher in the Rye" because I was a huge Leonard Cohen fan and Suzanne was my mantra.

This book meant more to me than almost any thing I had read.

I had my kids read it when they were in 6 or 7th grade and they felt the same way.

The book still gives me chills.

What's happening with Mr. McKay these days?

Format: Hardcover
I first read this book 35 years ago, when I was in 7th grade. It swept me into a world of characters with feelings like my own, something I'd seldom known. I immediately rushed out and bought a copy of Judy Collins singing "Suzanne," and wore out the record. I wore out the book, too - had to buy another copy.

Now, many years later, I still return to this beautiful book time and again, and recommend it to young friends.
