It has been a long time since I wrote anything about a book that I have read. This book was recommended by a fellow blogger, Kwizgiver at What If This Is As Good as It Gets? Several of my blogging friends are big on reading. And I read as much as I can. But not nearly as much as I used to. I do all of my reading on my Nook Color (the best present I have ever been given). I usually read 'free' books but occasionally I will have my interest piqued by another blogger and I just have to get the book and read it. It was that way with Gone Girl by Gillian Flynn. Now there was an interesting read.
But about Forgive Me, Leonard Peacock...The story takes place on Leonard's birthday and he is planning to kill another kid at school and then kill himself. But first he has to tell a few very special people good-bye. It is a story that is still haunting me even though I finished it a week or so ago. I think it should be read by all high school kids. I fell in L.O.V.E. with Leonard and wanted to become his mother and tell him that none of that stuff mattered and smother him with kisses and chocolate birthday cake.
The author did have an odd style of writing. He used lots of footnotes so I was always having to go forwards and backwards. But they do kind of fit the character of Leonard Peacock.
You must read it!
