Black Swan Green by David Mitchell
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
This was a very vivid snapshot of a year in a 13 year old's life. Reading this really did bring back what it felt like to be in middle school - all of the fears, emotional highs and lows, thought patterns, relationships with siblings, petty concerns (that seem enormous!), etc. I feel very attached to Jason Taylor and was very sorry to say goodbye to him as I finished this novel today.
David Mitchell has done a wonderful job; the writing is superb and utterly engaging. I would highly recommend this lovely coming of age story.
