I just finished this absolutely wonderful book. It follows a 7th grade boy during 1967-68 and his friends, family and especially a teacher/mentor. It‘s the Vietnam War, Shakespeare, cream puffs, rats and just finding out the person you‘re meant to be. I absolutely loved it and the Shakespeare references. (I‘m trying to be clever and illustrate it with a photo I took of Juliet‘s balcony in Verona last year.) Read this one, please.
