Okay For Now

my goodreads review

Okay for NowOkay for Now by Gary D. Schmidt
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

so honest, so funny and so heartbreaking.


This book deserves to be placed right next to the copy of 'the catcher in the rye' on my shelf. it is so good.

what i felt while reading this book:
It is about a fourteen year old American well it doesn’t really matter. He is a boy whose fathers works in paper mills, is short tempered and quick with his hands. This boy gets beat by his brothers and his mothers gets bullied by his father. He moves to a new place called Marysville. The narrative is so honest, funny and heartbreaking. You feel some of Doug’s struggle rubbing off on you. A teenage boy trying to do what he wants, trying to steal moments in pictures and errands despite all the bad, crappy things he has to go through. It is not inspirational but how can it fail to inspire? It did give me a push. About the fact that I’m not the only one who’s got life on the rough side. Good things CAN filter though all the obstacles and shine on you. If you just let it.
