Genre(s): Young Adult (Realistic Fiction)
I heard great things about this book, so when we saw it in the library, we decided to borrow it. Unfortunately, I didn't see what was so great about this book after all. Just wasn't my cup of tea.
Miles goes to boarding school to find his "Great Perhaps" and then meets some kids. He becomes friends with them, crushes on one of them, and they all mess around causing trouble.The whole time I was reading, I was asking myself, "Why am I reading about a couple of school kids messing around?". There wasn't a point to the story until "after" something happened, which happens more than halfway through the book.
The "after" part does stir some things up and kind of makes the book interesting. I don't want to spoil anything so I won't talk much about the "after" event. It was a shock, and held great meaning towards the end, but overall I was just disappointed.
Okay, just not so great
