    Lisa says: "Excellent Book"
    "Melodrama Abounds"
    Overall

    This melodramatic "adventure romance" disappoints at every turn. The characters are stereotyped, the dialogue is clich? and the production style (which uses various actors) is distracting.

    Henry Smith's father told him that if you build your house far enough away from Trouble, then Trouble will never find you. But Trouble comes careening down the road one night in the form of a pickup truck that strikes Henry's older brother, Franklin. In the truck is Chay Chouan, a young Cambodian from Franklin's preparatory school. The tragedy sparks racial tensions in the school.

    Vernita says: "A Well Woven Narrative"
    "A Well Woven Narrative"
    Overall

    Characters in this story make important journeys--individually and together--through inner landscapes of personal meaning and a social topography that includes racism, xenophobia, economic inequality and the awkwardness of adolescence. This novel is rich and meaningful, although some of the issues related to racism were presented in a stilted and stereotypical manner.

    Regardless, each main character faced his/her inner self in the light of disturbing life events and emerged changed, and no longer living in isolation but in community.

    This is an excellent book and is well worth a listen.
