I have to tell you, I originally had to read this as a school requirement in the late 1970's. Since then this book has left such a positive impression and I consistently recommend this to the young adults who express an interest in reading. I am waiting until my children are a few years older to introduce them to the story. The characters are wonderful and it is easy to relate to them. The story moves well as we follow Dave through a year of his life and experience his maturing, somehow influenced by Cat. You can clearly see why this won the Newbery
