to my kids aged 7, 10, 14, they couldn t get enough I am very sad that I never read this as a young person, because I think that I would have loved it eventhan I do now I think that it probably would have blown my mind I have to applaud Louis Sachar for being so courageous in a children s novel.Effortlessly weaving together the past, present, and ancient history of these characters, Mr Sachar examines the impact of our history and the nature of hope and human compassion, all while maintaining a light, humorous quality This is a book for I am very sad that I never read this as a young person, because I think that I would have loved it eventhan I do now I think that it probably would have blown my mind I have to applaud Louis Sachar for being so courageous in a children s novel.Effortlessly weaving together the past, present, and ancient history of these characters, Mr Sachar examines the impact of our history and the nature of hope and human compassion, all while maintaining a light, humorous quality This is a book for children, but one that never speaks down to children It is both mature and youthful.Stanley is tried and convicted for a crime that he didn t commit, sent to a reform camp for boys, and forced to work day after day in the hot sun digging holes without any hope of aid He s treated callously and unfairly, but he must learn to keep going, get along with the boys around him, and survive This is not a book that promises like so many other children s books do success and rewards for good behavior, for choosing all the right paths That s not what real living, real maturity is all about It s about learning to deal with adversity and tragedy and failure when they come because they will It s about making the right choices even when there are no rewards, no promised successes, simply because they re right Andthan that it s about choosing kindness and compassion, even when everything around you is hard and unfair The only part of this novel that I don t quite like is the ending, which seems to undermine therealistic quality of the rest of the novel I wish that Stanley and Hector could survive happily without a fairy tale ending, because after all of that, they know that they don t need one to be happy But I think that as a child, I would have enjoyed seeing them win the day.Perfect Musical PairingBrett Dennen Darlin Do Not FearThis

is such a great STORY It s incredibly unrealistic, but also wonderfully thought out There are so many things that connect and trickle down through the generations of multiple families, which makes no sense most of the time but BOY is it ever fun I m pretty sure I read this as a kid, but it was just as great as an adult.
