Return to Augie Hobble by Lane Smith
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
If you live in a semi-rural area, you know those formerly wonderful amusement parks (usually themed) that have fallen on hard times as Six Flags and the lure of Disney have grown. Augie's family owns and operates one of those parks, and the depiction of the workers and "amusements" feels quite realistic. Poor Augie, having to work there all summer and forced to create a new art project so he can pass a failed class. He'd rather be hanging with his BFF or flirting (or attempting to flirt) with the new Cinderella. And I'll stop there, to avoid spoilers. Finding out how Augie's summer goes, was fun and funny (at times... read it and you'll see what I mean).
