Klickitat; Peter Rock

KlickitatKlickitat by Peter Rock
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

Is Vivian an unreliable narrator? What happened to Audra? What's wrong with home and Vivian's parents? Is ham radio really still a thing? So many questions still remain at the end of this book that more than three stars felt wrong.

On the one hand, you have Vivian, who has some anxiety (possibly ASD) issues requiring heavy medication. On the other, you have free spirit Audra. They both run away - somewhat implausibly - and then, something happens. Or did it happen before, and the running away didn't happen quite the way it's described? So many of my students dislike the ambiguity at the end of The Giver, which makes me wonder how they'll feel about this.
