Black Swan Green by David Mitchell
Black Swan Green

This one really resonated for me. Mitchell completely captured the dizzying experience of being thirteen - not an adult, not a child, but caught in the great, confusing abyss in-between. I loved this book so much that I actually started to ration my reading to only a couple of pages a day because I couldn't bear for it to end. Vivid and heartfelt. I'll be re-reading this one an a regular basis just to spend more time with the lead character. I'd love to meet up with him again some time. For anyone who feels that "Catcher In The Rye" is an over-rated coming of age novel, this book is for you!
