Boo Humbug

Gutteridge, Rene. 2007. Boo Humbug.

I actually read this one on Sunday, but I didn't have time to review it before Christmas. This one is a gem of a book. It is funny and fun, and a book I recommend all around. It is set in a small town in Indiana, and it is one in a series of books. But this was my first exposure to the town and the people and I did just fine so I'm going to assume that others would do the same. There are multiple narrators, multiple story lines, etc. I won't go into too much detail here, it's best to read for yourself, but trust me it is funny and it just works wonderfully.

I don't laugh out loud often. And I rarely *torture* people by reading aloud passages from books, but in the case of Boo Humbug...I did both.
