I read some concerning reviews so I’ll be reading this myself before I decide if it stays.

Example:
A story from a bygone era...
Reviewed in the United States on August 15, 2015
Fair warning upfront: this book was written about a time that was not politically correct whatsoever. There are parts with bullies at school, fist fights, children getting spanked / whacked by teachers and parents, and an episode of anti-Semitism. Yet overall, these small stories (each chapter is a stand alone tale) are interesting and engaging memories of our narrator Robert and his childhood best friend, named Soup. If you can read these books without a judgmental 2015 eye, you're sure to enjoy them as well.”… (mais)

Very touching in some parts, too graphic in others. I decided it does not meet my shelf standard.

I liked this book...but I don't think I'd hand it over to my 11-year-old. It's not that it's overly violent - although there's definitely some rough scenes - it's just that it might be a little too much for younger kids. The story was quick, it kept me reading, and I enjoyed references to Rutland (which is only 30 minutes away). It was a look into the past that I enjoyed along with some references local and of that time that I recognized. The semi-autobiographical nature of the book (with the author coming from and writing about a Shaker upbringing) also made it more interesting.… (mais)
