i gotta agree with amy on this one. (and she always says it so well)
i just never really bonded with the characters of this book. it was disappointing after Peace Like a River, whose characters i fell in love with, bringing to mind the brilliant characters and relationship of scout and aticus in To Kill a Mockingbird.
question: to whom does the title refer as brave, young, and handsome? none of the characters seem to fit this description.
