Down Sand Mountain by Steve Watkins

I kind of feel bad for not liking this book. It’s always fun to read Florida settings. I didn’t like The Catcher in the Rye either, so maybe I’m just not a connoisseur of classics which star a slow witted main character. Read the reviews on Amazon, especially the 2 star one. The main character is twelve years old. This book has multiple sexual encounters/references that I feel are inappropriate for any middle school audience, and I can’t imagine that high school students would much care to analyze its plot for whatever deep themes it might have.
