    When The River Still Ran

    It's a five and if I gave it less I'd be lying. Who would enjoy this? Almost anyone. It is a lovely blend of snide asides, romance, action, humour, and tragedy, and brings some intriguing characters to life on the page.

    I genuinely wanted the characters to have a happy ending, but I was equally unsure that they would through the entire length of the book. The contrast between the school's rigid system and the unstructured world the hobos live in was really well done, but it was so realistic about the downsides of both. This was a really good read.

    I am hoping that this means a five out of five, and if that is the case then I am interested. Judging from the rest of the review I think this is correct, and the blend of all those elements really does sound quite appealing. Thank you for this one, and I love the more character driven stories.

    Perfect. There is not other word. This book was just, just, perfect.

    It has been months since I read it, and yet I can still remember exactly how it made me feel.

    I can't forget the ending.
