rating: 4 of 5 stars
A beautiful and honest story, full of snow.
It feels disquietingly similar to the high school and childhood life I saw happening around me, and often, reeks abundantly with my own past. You will recognize yourself in this book, and will often feel sad but will also laugh uncomfortably and self-righteously at times. Indeed, I think if you were born between 1975 and 1985, it will be hard not to have your jaw drop at times at how Thompson has remembered your past better than you do. There is deep loveliness in this, and deep sorrow as well.
I finished it in one sitting. I recommend the same to all who pick it up.

Thanks for handing it to me Tucker. We shall discuss.
