Definition: ennui: a feeling of listlessness and dissatisfaction arising from a lack of occupation or excitement. That's where I've been in reading land lately. And then I saw this....
So I am closing the book that I am reading and that I really, really, wanted to like.
I wanted to like it because I was growing sick of YA romance. Saving Lucas Biggs is a book meant for a younger crowd, but it tackles some interesting issues, so I thought it would be good for the Ridgeline Library. Dang! It has an element of time travel that I felt didn't fit and I couldn't keep the characters straight. I am surprised by the lexile reading level. 930! And in a book intended for middle schoolers. Maybe that is what threw me. I was expecting an easy read and didn't get it.
