I was in the mood for some easy reading over Thanksgiving so picked up The Boy is Back from the library. The entire story is told via chats, emails, journal entries, and newspaper articles. It’s one of those.
It was… just ok. I read the entire thing over a day and a half of on and off reading. It goes by so fast that you don’t really get to know or really start caring about the characters before everything is all resolved and it’s over. Hmph.
TL;DR: Boy meets girl in high school, boy and girl have whirlwind romance, cue conflict!, cue decade of wondering, and finally the boy’s return to his hometown (and his first love). You know, the usual. This one also includes hoarders and feral cats.
Hope you had a lovely Thanksgiving!
