Description du produit
Présentation de l'éditeur
Debbie is wishing something would happen. Something good. To her. Soon. In the meantime, Debbie loses a necklace and finds a necklace (and boy does the necklace have a story to tell), she goes jeans shopping with her mother (an accomplishment in diplomacy), she learns to drive shift in a truck (illegally), she saves a life (directly connected to being able to drive, thus proving something), she takes a bus ride to another town (in order to understand what it feels like to be from "elsewhere"), she meets a boy (who truly is from "elsewhere"), but mostly she hangs out with her friends: Patty, Hector, Lenny, and Phil. Their paths cross. Their stories crisscross. And in Lynne Rae Perkins's remarkable book, a girl and her wish grow up. Illustrated throughout with black–and–white pictures, comics, and photographs by the author.

What appeals to me the most about this novel is the atmosphere. Ms. Perkins has a very personal prose style that stands apart from most other authors. There's almost a dreamy quality that hangs over this novel that doesn't stand in the way of giving it a very "truthful" feel. I was impressed by how strongly I was drawn to the young people and their very ordinary struggles.
To that end, there isn't a particularly strong plot here, but the characters are very well drawn and come across as much more like real young people than you find in most young adult novels. The fact is, that not a lot of "extraordinary" things happen in most lives. Still, to us, there is nothing more we think about than our own existence. This is something Ms. Perkins captures very well.
In the end, I can only say that this is a book I would be ready to sit down and read again. I don't say that about many books, but this one.
