Buddy Boyle lives year round with his family in unfashionable Seaville New York in a cramped little house on the bay Skye Pennington spends the summers nearby on lavish estate complete with ocean view and a butler named Pea I first read this in 8th grade English class probably around April or May of 1992 About 3 or 4 years ago I remembered it and scoped it out online Being poor it went on my to get list on and stayed there until last week when I needed to get one thing to ualify for super saver shipping for some other item and Gentlehands finally made it to the shopping cart and got checked out When it got here I opened it just to read the first page or so to see how I would like it and I ended up setting The Mayor of Casterbridge aside to just read this The prose is nice and light even if the subject matter isn t so it didn t take too long It is after all geared toward teenagersI ve seen this described as a teen romance but I don t know if I d call it that There are certainly elements of romance in this but it s so much than that There s a kid dealing with his shitheaded family The issues of class differences antisemitism drug use alcohol forgiveness or lack thereof acceptance or lack thereof and many others are explored I found myself getting really pissed off while reading and rooting for things to go the main character s way and being so emotionally vested in the work is a sign of a good story I found myself torn between a desire to see justice for crimes committed and forgiveness for a character I really likedI don t want to have to post a spoiler alert for this because I think everyone should read it It seems my memories were correct I did really like it and I still do It s not great writing though I probably say that because I ve been immersed in the classics for the past few years and those are tough acts to follow as far as careful sentence crafting is concerned but this is still a great story Check it out
