#21 The Unthinkable Thoughts of Jacob Green by Joshua Braff

I think I need to cool it with the books narrated by boys. Too much testosterone for me. I buzzed through this book super quick (I started it on my way to the bus and finished it that night.). I thought that the family dynamic was interesting and was curious to see what happened to them in the end. The Greens are Jewish and that was of interest to me, as well. I liked how each family member dealt with religion (and by proxy, the dad) differently but the older son seemed way, way over top. Maybe that's because I had a sheltered teenagehood (scratch that, I was definitely very naive in my teens, and now too probably) and never experienced anything like that. I would have liked to see more about the younger kids and why the college student was so creepily involved with Jacob. That was definitely a weird situation. In conclusion, I'm glad this book is from the library.

Margeret Atwood's latest is next; I need some estrogen, stat.
