I am a reader and book evangelist. For many years I have kept a reading journal with little descriptions of the books I read and dates I read them. Kind of a trail of book bread crumbs that chart my interests over a given course of time. This blog gives me a way to continue my journal and share my reading interests with others. My latest adventures in creating, dining, and traveling can be found at my website LindasOtherLife.com
This one took me by surprise. I ran out and got Citrus County from the library when I read that John Brandon had been named one of New York Public Library's Young Lion Award winners and novel is published by McSweeney's. An awkward middle school boy named Toby is the protagonist at the center of this equally hilarious and disturbing tale. I want other readers to have the same reaction I had when I got to the end of the first chapter and realized this book would be a wild ride.
