The Reluctant Journal of Henry K Larsen

IMG_5210

This is a darker book than Susin Nielsen’s previous novels.

“Everyone has their secrets.  But mine can’t be shared. The psychologist says I should talk about IT.  And he wants me to keep this journal.  I’ll keep the stupid journal.  But IT stays a secret.”

Henry’s life changed 7 1/2 months ago.  This funny, heartbreaking novel follows his move to a new city with his dad and the people they meet along the way.  Fantastic characters come to life under exceptional circumstances.  This isn’t always an easy read but I really enjoyed it Ms T.
