My Thoughts: I was unsure about this book at first. Wade is easy to like. You root for him. If you were growing up in the 1980’s (I believe) you might be able to enjoy it more than I. There were a lot of references from that time period. I did not know or understand a lot of those because I grew up in the 1990’s. It was still very good.
