True Grit by Charles Portis

This was on my fourteen year olds' school book list, and came in the post the other day. I picked it up to read the intro by Donna Tart (I really enjoyed The Goldfinch) and thought, oh my goodness, I am going to LOVE this book. And I do. And what a fantastic choice for a group of teenage makes me so happy that my son has an English teacher who would choose it. The narrator, and heroine is just, words fail me but honestly, you could not want your teenagers to read about anyone better, braver, funnier, more plain spoken and well, heroic. The movie is good, granted, but as always the book is way, way better.

This edition is only €3.88.
