5.0 out of 5 stars This book has "stayed with me"...wonderful and unpredictable!, November 18, 2009
This review is from: Labor Day: A Novel (Hardcover)
Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
I read this book 2 months ago and have taken some time to write this review... I wanted to let it settle, linger in my mind a bit. The author captures the point of view / narrative of a 13-year old perfectly. The story, bittersweet and sad, is very readable and definitely a page turner. Along with "The Help", this is one of the books that I've thought about quite a bit since I put it down, and plan to re-read it.

The story is engrossing; and better yet - completely unpredictable. I don't want to write too much and spoil it, but suffice it to say that the activities of one Labor Day weekend affected both young Henry and his mother for the rest of their lives. This is one of the best books I've read this year.

Definitely recommended.
