I read this book lots of years ago, and I remembered so little that I decided to re-read it. This Angela Johnson lady is some kind of writer. What an amazing book. The characters are real - there are not cliches here. And the story is like a sucker punch in slow motion - the impact is so slow at first you don't even know you got hit, but you feel stunned when it's over. Everyone should read this, as well as the companion novels, Heaven and Sweet, Hereafter. ( )

Okay, so maybe I've been reading a lot of YA lit lately, but I LOVED this. Booktalking it for a class, and am so glad it was recommended to me. ( )
