Almost A Favorite Of Mine

This book is very well-written and the protagonist has an authentic, real voice in the novel. I loved this book, but Vee, the main character, fools around with a girl and describes her in detail, so this book is not good for kids under fourteen. That, however, is not a huge part of the story. The story is about finding yourself and who you are. In the second half of the book, Vee realizes he likes his best friend, a girl named Madison. It is very sweet how Vee treats her, and their relationship is arguably the most touching part of the story. While a lot of the book was very satisfying, the background idea that Vee knows nothing of his family tree is quite boring. If you, as a reader, get through the uneventful first few chapters, the rest of the book will be greatly rewarding. It might even stand as one of your favorites.
