Maggie @ Just a Couple More Pages - Johnny was such a skeeze. Also, what did I call Harry the other day? A screwed up Ralphie? I think your Christmas Story voice is such a good comparison.

Alexa S. - This is the second review I’ve seen for THE SCAR BOYS. It’s a story that sounds very different from all the YA contemporary I usually read… and that’s a GOOD thing. You’re definitely making me want to give this story a go!

Ellice - I like the premise of this one! I’m always wishing that there were more books set in the 70s, 80s, & 90s because there is so much potential there. Those decades fascinate me in fiction, mainly because it takes readers back to a time when technology was scarce and things were SO different than they are today. I’ll definitely have to check this one out. Great review! 🙂
