my take: This read is as fun as its cover and title. It's mostly written in emails and faxes and that sort of document....which at first I thought was going to be tedious but was actually easy and entertaining. And, later in the story one discovers why.
Part coming of age, part light mystery, part mid-life crisis this really has something for everyone. For me, reading it at the very end of summer (September) extended that beach read feeling into the school year. Some might call that denial ... I call it ingenuity. Make it last, people.
Aspects I enjoyed: the 'gnats' of the school, how people aren't always what they seem to be, and it's never too late to figure out what one wants to be when one grows up. OWD: diverting.
my source: saw this lots of places and when Michele mentioned it (and loaned it) it was time
my take: well worth a read
