1. “I often wonder if such short, quiet stories have the same appeal for the actual kids who read them as they do for the adults who recommend them.”

    I sometimes wonder the same thing regarding the oh-so-good-but-not-particularly-exciting books I read and review. In fact, I’m wondering if The Summer I Learned to Fly doesn’t fit that category. It was GOOD, but I’m not sure a teenager would think so. Especially because the protagonist was 13, I think that one would probably appeal more to a middle-grade-ish audience than to a teen one.

    As for Hound Dog True, I’m sad that my library doesn’t own it, because it sounds like a great book.
