    Although I enjoy this author, this book was written for juveniles (not verr young ones) and I didn't think it was as good as most of Doyle's other books that I've read so far. I also thought a couple of passages were too strong for juveniles, too graphic. The story has a good moral lesson, ultimately.

    I love Brian Doyle's writing. He packs so much wit into everyday situations and creates characters that you know.

    In my honest opinion I think that this book was a great read. It was an easy read so anyone would be easy to read it. It had a great meaning behind the book and what it was trying to get across to the reader. Another thing about the book is that I was a able to relate to the book.

    I enjoyed this, read it in a couple of hours over two days. I needed something easy and quick and this fit the bill. It was cool reading about places that used to be in Ottawa, that aren't there anymore, places that are familiar.

    I thought it was going to be the story of the Pure Spring soft drink company - but actually Pure Spring was extremely tangential to this story. Which was a kind of sweet story but very slight.

    made me cry and cry. good. sad. a little mystery. drags on a tiny bit, but the good bits are so good, i don't care. beware of the sob-inducing chapter nearing the end of the book.
