on my bookshelf: just kids, 2010

well, i 've been waiting, to the point of forgetting, that kind of waiting so long, then when patti smith's just kids arrived in my library holds, i was alright to just wait again for my ol' man to finish it first. now i'm just started & completely  absorbed. i think my young teenage self would have loved this, i suppose we had basketball diaries, however i'm making luke read this, well after me.

  1. I've been wanting to read this for a while, thanks for the reminder to check it out next library trip.

  2. oooohhh I read this too, such a good idea to have Luke read it. It will be amazing for him.

  3. I loved it too, such a universal story for all of us who spent our adolescence longing for something better, more beautiful, more magic. And I admire them for their unwillingness to comprise and their material sacrifices. I was more of a sensible chicken I think when I was in their age!


don't be shy, please leave me a comment!
