I know this is a YA book but it story goes beyond any age, Cam is a person, like most of us that spend their lives trying to find out who they are, who they really are. I think Zusak said it best when he said that our lives are defined by moments and I thank him for sharing this stories moments. He writes with such emotion that regardless of your feeling for the characters you know that they are real feelings that Zusak has brought to the readers surface . There are not many authors that can make you feel like Zusak does, I have read all of his books and feel the same about all of them.
Getting The Girl is not the story that you think it is by the title, it is not about the act of getting the girl it is the journey that Cam spends getting there and what a journey it is that Zusak shares. I would recommend this book to anyone regardless of age.
There is a realness to the story that touches the emotions of the reader and always leaves you with a feeling of "okayness".
Buy the book, read it and plan on reading it again.
Once again, thanks Markus Zusak for sharing your talent
