times, it was and still is a compelling thriller/comming of age story that holds up extremely well despite it's age (early 70's). There are some mature themes (language, violence, sexual suggestion) but nothing more than say PG-13. The character are so well rounded you and the story so absorbing, you will find yourself comming back to this one many times over as I did. And it has a strong message, sometimes the lessons you learn in life are not always easy ones.. Highly recommended.
The author of this book is Richard Peck, a man with many hobbies. But I am not here to talk about the author, I am here to talk about this book and why you should read it. But before I do that I want to talk about the characters. The main characters are Flip and Brian, two best friends who are always together. Minor characters are Alvin and Ms. Restless. My favorite character is Alvin because he is funny and random.
The setting of this story is in Chicago around the 1990s. Flip and Brian have been best friends since first grade. But everything changes when they get to seventh grade. That's when they find a dead man near Dreamland Lake. After that they kept getting involved in things that Brian did not want to be in.
Why should you read this book? Well because it's a book full of suspense, mystery and adventure. I didn't only have fun while I read but I also became part of the book. It's great when the book is trying to talk to you, not just telling a story. That's why I enjoyed it a lot.
If even after all I've told you about this book and you still don't want to read it, recommend it to someone else that might be interested. I'm not going to force to read this book, but I do want people to read this book. If you don't like it someone else could, like me. I just don't know who wouldn't want this book when it's full of suspense, mystery and adventure. So just give it a try, you might just like it.

I read this novel maybe a half-dozen times in the mid/late '70s. There seems to be a debate recently amongst NPR and WSJ critic types about dark themes in YA/juvenile literature. Read morePublished on July 6, 2011 by Booker T.
