Enjoyable book full of metaphors. They seemed a little much in the beginning but by the end of the book, I did not mind them one bit. The story is told from two different points of view: Noah when he is 13 and Jude when she is 16. I really felt for Noah and enjoyed his chapters much more than I did Jude’s. He was more likable and more sympathetic for me.
The book is a coming of age tale which deals with issues of loss, sexuality, grief, guilt, angst, family secrets, and longing.
