3/19/11 ** I started this last night over dinner - was hooked by p. 8 and didn't put it down until it fell on my nose, waking me up. I was on p. 39 at that point; Ambrose, the narrator, was in my head when I woke up. Nielsen has managed to catch the voice of the nerdy 7th grade boy perfectly. The Scrabble snippets pique my interest too. ** Well, I finished it this afternoon - shouldn't have carried it out of the house with me - defeated the purpose of getting out to get some work done!
