About this deal

I always prided myself on my performance at Fish Camp—throughout my childhood and adolescence, I was driven by a desire to do well. This tedious storyline takes up more space than the murder, overwhelming the entire second half of the book. Other days, Dad would be shouting swear words as he ran out into the snow in his slippers and underwear to pick up loose pieces of newspaper that had flown out of Brisco’s mouth. But then you would hear the mice tearing into the Pop-Tarts left out on the counter and try your best not to squirm while they feasted a few feet from your head, which I suppose wasn’t seen as particularly “manly” either. It’s a great read, authentic and unapologetic in a way that will mean a lot to an entire generation of kids who will inevitably, wonderfully, see themselves in him.

Such wonderful reassurance that it’s okay to feel different, and that our senses of self and identity can constantly change over time. The sun would set, we’d build a bonfire and grill some fish, and Uncle Gene would drive out to camp to tell us scary stories about man-eating wolves, close encounters with bears, and the occasional camper-abducting alien. I can’t understand why they do it, but then I look at the reviews on Goodreads and see that loads of people have given this five stars, so clearly there must be a market for these padded waffles. He seems distraught about his parents' deaths, but rumours soon spread about tensions on the home front.We don’t share your credit card details with third-party sellers, and we don’t sell your information to others. They didn’t seem to like me occupying any of their spaces, and the spaces I occupied—like the library, the bowling alley, and the stage—didn’t make any sense to them. I was a confident fisherman, great at tying hooks, and never minded getting my hands dirty or slimy. m. to roll the dough out onto the counter and cover it to let it rise once more before the sticky buns were tossed into the oven as we opened presents around the tree. Though we’ve had our hard times, certain phrases ring true: my parents always “wanted the best for me,” and they absolutely “made me who I am today.

I laughed at the police finding it hard to believe he didn’t find her body in the guest room until the next morning. There would have been dramatic reenactments of the shrieking and complaining that night around the fire. Eventually, I packed up my tackle box and turned my back to the river, figuring the monsters—except for the fish ghost—would come from the woods. My husband’s father immigrated to the United States from Malta in the 1970s, and I liked the name, so I decided to take it when we got married.

To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average.

This was an excellent read, I was drawn in from the opening chapter and could not put this one down.Of course it’s fiction, but still, it would be nice to see a successful, likeable, sensible professional woman occasionally!

Yoopers have a thick, unique northern accent, some of which has rubbed off on my family over the years. And I agree about women in high-profile jobs who seem to be constantly distracted by romance, especially once they are out of their early 20s.

Open the front door, and Brisco would run outside, grab the newspaper from the mailbox, and bring it back into the house. As a father myself now, looking back at everything he was trying to do for everyone, I realize he must’ve been exhausted all the time. And it reminds us that by telling our stories and showing up for one another, we can empower others to find value in telling their stories as well. He
