Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0970070284, Paperback)Do you remember what it used to feel like walking barefoot in the woods, mud squishing between your toes, sunshine browning your shoulders, your best friends at your side? Do you recall the summer fair coming to town, the excitement of seeing the carnies set up the rides, the thrill of going on them all day long, laughing until your stomach hurt, stuffing pressed wads of cotton candy into your mouth as you strolled down Main Street blocked off for those 5 glorious days the smell of French fries and elephant ears swirling through the air? When was the last time you stomped through a puddle intentionally just to see how high you could make a splash? Did you ever pull a prank so glorious it fooled the entire town?
Part Huck Finn, part Little Rascals, part Catcher in the Rye. . .William Zink, in his first book for the slightly younger crowd, spins a girl s coming-of-age tale unlike any other. In refreshing departure from wizards, vampires, or other escapism comprising the bulk of current young adult literature, Wild Grapes is an innovative, reality-based epic about friendship, hope, and the small, precious details of summertime. Geared for the 12 and up audience, this future classic will be equally enjoyed by folks of all ages.
