Really enjoyed this book. Managed to successfully blend elements of romance, courtroom drama and coming of age into a thouroughly satisfying mixture. Elements reminded me of mockingbird, and I thought that the author did a good job of capturing some of the complexity of racism . Will definitely try to leRn more about internment

I debated between 2 and 3 stars. I didn't exactly 'like' it but that was mostly because of the details of the case his dad was handling. The case was so horrific and upsetting that it made it difficult to feel anything else even though the book is about more than that specific case. It is also about love and the narrator's relationship with his family, but primarily with his dad at the end of his dad's life. That part of the story is beautifully related.

The weather becomes a character in its own right as a snow storm comes in to disrupt the trial.… (mais)

10 short stories about American men or boys and their relationships with others.

Personally I found the stories unappealing and only managed to finish the book because they were short. If you are into baseball or hunting the book might be more interesting, but I can't say I enjoyed any of them.
