8 Plus 1 by Robert Cormier (1991)
  Francostudies | Feb 5, 2009 |
Cormier, as usual, uses vital and direct language to convey vivid stories about youth. He not only is one of the best YA authors, but one of the best authors out there, period.
  heina | Feb 23, 2008 |
Cormier is a brilliant author and this book does not disappoint. Shorter stories than the full-length novels like The Chocolate War, Cormier's stories capture life with an uncanny realism. ( )

Meet seventeen-year-old Mike, who visits his grandmother's bedside and learns a family secret.
