Delightfully, some of our more venerable titles are still finding new readers and coming to the attention of new reviewers. Recently, Jenni at Boys in our Books turned her attention to Adam Fitzroy's MAKE DO AND MEND, which seems to have been a pretty positive experience on the whole.
A very strong cast of supporting characters—including Harry’s jerk of a brother and other more likeable folks—helped to move things along and kept the story interesting enough that I ended up really cheering for Harry and Jim to find a way to be together. It was a story about finding yourself and learning to accept who you are, and I enjoyed the experience very much.
Thank you, Jenni, we're really pleased you liked it!
