“Really well written as far as the coming-of-age theme goes. Lots of longing on Dwight's part for Slim. By the time I got to the end of the book, I didn't care much about what had happened to the other boy because of what he had done.
It dragged on a bit, but I was okay with that. Some eyebrow raising scenarios were suggested about some of the relationships within the book, which I found interesting. The scariest part to me was the twins waiting on the road a few weeks before the climatic scenes in the book. I don't know why they showed up at the end, other than just happenstance. Slim was way too unbelievable there at the end, sadly, though I still admire her competence. The ending fizzled for me.”
