The Selected Works of T.S. Spivet - Reif Larsen
I really wanted to love this book, but it's so slow in places that I could only like it. Also, beware that it has the "F" word in it, so maybe it's not such a great choice for some kids. I did feel for T. S. Spivet and his odd home life, but I just didn't care as much as I initially thought I would.
