This was an exciting library find for me. I wasn’t even looking for a book for me, but the adult fiction is near check out and the cover caught my eye.
It is the story of two men … well one man and a boy becoming a man. Arthur weighs 550 pounds and he hasn’t left the house. Kel is 18, and doesn’t want to go home. They are connected through Kel’s mother, Charlene.
It is a novel about families, loss and love. It is about finding yourself. I read it in 4 days, and that wasn’t reading it all the time either. I found it compelling reading … and I stopped reading another book that was getting exciting because I had to keep reading this one.
I won’t say more. Feel free to disagree.
