What is a phone booth?
What is a phone booth? Or a live operator for collect calls. I made collect calls in the 90s and early s and never got a live operator so what the heck is that about? Just text me for goodness sake. Even without the outdated-ness, this book is a total mess.
It is hard to connect with either of the main characters. The narrative This book was published in and it feels incredibly dated, to the point that teenagers today won't identify with what is going on. The narrative doesn't seem to be consistent, it takes place really over the course of three days.
Truly more like a day and half, which is a really short time period for all this to occur. The characters don't like each other then they are suddenly in love over the course of 6 hours. Many of these hours aren't even spent together.
The girl likes the guy because he reminds her of her brother and he is nice to her. The guy likes the girl because his only summer friend makes him feel like a baby and he wants to feel like a man. Then there are at least two parts of the book that jar you so badly it completely takes you out of the story.
The first is a quick nude scene not sex, just nude but it seems out of place for the character. So much so the author feels compelled to put in some exposition afterwards about how the character has gone skinny dipping before so it is not out of complete nowhere.
The second is a conversation near the end where it becomes VERY clear that the father and son need some serious therapy. Seriously, who says these things to their teenage kid? My goodness, seek help. All in all it is a quick read but one I did not really enjoy. This book is not very good at all.Books by Kathy Stinson (24) Fish House Secrets.
