As a child of the 60's this reflective look at the life of a group of teens and the adults they become is 'right on'. Pat Conroy nails the era, life in a small town, being a part of a dysfunctional family, and still manages to impart, with heartfelt emotion, man's inhumanity to man in the Holocuast. I love this book!

Pat Conroy really has a way with words. His words captivate you, you will want to read it over. Sometimes I would read a paragraph over again and admire the way he wrote. It's a heartwarming book, and still has humor.
