The Story of Edgar Sawtelle by David Wroblewski
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
If you are looking for a good writer, this is the one! The writing style of this book is what keeps you coming back. The setting of the story takes place on an old farm, which makes you fall in love with this story. Throughout the book, I could picture in my mind what the farm looked like and the sense of peace that existed there.
The main character is either Edgar, a mute boy, or his dog, Almondine. The author makes you fall in love with Almondine. She is loving, faithful, compassionate, and Edgar's protector. The book is not only about Edgars life, but about a series of events that take place that makes Edgar forced to make heavy decisions about the direction of his life and the safety of his family.
The book is intertwined with story after story. Loved it!
