Ok, so I’m not done with the book, but so far, The Dive from Clausen’s Pier, is really good. It does seem like a girl would enjoy it more because it’s from a girl’s perspective, but it’s not about girly things, just relationships, and dealing with emotions that don’t fit what people think you are ‘supposed’ to feel. It’s a very good story. I’ll put a more complete review on here when I actually finish the book.
On my “Lost in the Book” scale of 1 to 10 with 1 being “I could watch TV and read this book at the same time and not miss a thing” and 10 being “You have to pull the book away from my face and yell at me to get me to realize you are there”…. I give this book so far a 7.
For those of you who have ever tried to talk to me while watching a show I like or reading a good book, you know what I mean by # 10! hehe.
