- Paul Cumbo, Author of Boarding Pass
I highlighted a lot of passages where Cochrane shows off his literary deftness, some about Fitz's feelings, some about music, and one about bonzai trees... but it's also a fast-paced read; in fact, I read it in one sitting. This is a good pick for teens who like deeper and more realistic books than whatever's trending this month, but still want a page turner.
I suppose I was just expecting more drama, more action, more excitement. Fitz, though, is a literary tale that focuses on Fitz's journey to understanding who he is, as defined by his absent father. Fitz is obviously a very troubled boy, and Cochrane gives us bits and pieces that show Fitz has a lot of stuff going on in his head. I just never felt connected to him. It felt more like I was simply being told everything and I wanted to actually experience Fitz's anger and sorrow.
This is definitely a book that would appeal to more literary work lovers, though I think readers who have gone through similar upbringings as Fitz may be able to connect easier with his character.
