Review
I thought this book was a good read for a school project, though i woulds read it for pleasure. it was about a rabbi asking one of his congregants to do his eulogy. i thought that he was trying to get the congregant to come back to his faith, after he strayed, but he didn't.  View at phoenixpubliclibrary.org

This is actually my current favorite book. It is about a boy (Evan Owens) and a girl (Lucy). They were best friends when the were kids, but then Lucy moved away, and she's changed. I love this book because it is the perfect mix of humor and seriousness. It is spontaneous and interesting, with a lot of drawings throughout. The problems the characters face are all too real- another great thing about this book. you should read it if you find it hard to read books without pictures, or if you like fantasy and tattoos.   View at phoenixpubliclibrary.org
