A Book Vacation
on July 05, 2012 :
This is a very short story that follows a young boy as he realizes the truth about his parents. The story picks up somewhat in medias res, as Gordy attends a party at his aunt’s. Less than pleased with his attire and the people surrounding him, he ventures out of doors, where he meets a dog, Donut, and as the story unfolds, he eventually learns that he must rely on others in this coming of age tale.
I must admit, this story wasn’t at all what I expected, but it is very well done, though completely different from all of Hildenbrand’s other work. I think this is something that younger readers will enjoy, especially as it’s short and Gordy is very young. Of course, as a short story, there isn’t much room for character development, but I think Hildenbrand captures the feelings of the characters very well.
