I find green days by the river a very interesting book. It was my favourite book at school. I read this book i in a day, it teaches us as young people how to deal with the facts of life such as friends, family and the company we keep. It is a very good novel, that i am really lost for words. Keep up the good work Michael Anthony.

This book does not seem to me to be particularly well written or edited. It was quite interesting, but not what one would call gripping.
