    1. I made a deliberate effort to hunt down this book after having Lowry Pei as a writing professor I was curious to see what he d written I was not disappointed Although as an everyday set, everyday character driven novel it s a bit outside my normal genre preferences, Pei was than able to hold my attention and the portrait he painted of midwestern Missouri, small town life in the 1980s was so lovingly redolent of my own childhood only a decade later in very similar circumstances Family Resemblanc [...]


    2. After a close encounter with the fourth kind a pubescent and hormonal 17 year old young man a mother and father decide to send their only child 15 year old Karen Moss off to her aunt Augusta s for an indeterminate amount of time over the summer vacation The Moss s feel that a trip away from the fast city of Chicago and out into country side of New Franklin, Missouri will cool her off and allow them time to work on their own problems Confused by her boyfriend s advances she is sent into even of [...]


    3. Often, totally random grabs from used bookstores don t amount to much but as this one had the Vintage Contemporaries spine design, I had high hopes This is a well done little coming of age story that can work as long as the writing s good and it s good Lots and lots of little moments of wisdom from the 15 year old narrator that are usually on the money and interesting and unique enough so as to convince you this person might be real All the 15 year old stuff is there family angst, boy angst, awk [...]


    4. One of those books I picked up completely on a whim, Family Resemblences seems just about forgotten On doing a bit of research read Googling , I found that Pei has kept a low profile since the mid to late 80s, publishing little through official channels, though a great deal is available on his website on a Creative Commons license, including this book and six other novels If I were the ebook kind I d be sorely tempted.On the surface this seems like a typical summer coming of age story the extend [...]


    5. Karen is a teenager who has been through it all She had just recently broke up with her boyfriend and her parent s marriage is on the rocks In spite all these events Karen goes to spend her summer with her aunt in a Midwestern town where she learns alot about life and love This book was not the best book I have read but it was good Im not really into to book that take place in the 50 s but this story can apply to any era I like how the story shows that when there is a loss there is a gain where [...]


    6. This is YA coming of age at its best I m pretty sure it s the best YA I ve read in 2011, and at the same time the book is literary enough that I d recommend it to folks who turn up their noses at YA.Do you remember what it felt like the first times you were able to talk to an adult as an adult Coming of age YA books tend to be all about sex and that s touched on here but the power of this book is broadening the scope of what it means to reach adulthood The relationship between our young heroine [...]


    7. Another great story, told by a great narrator Karen, the 15 year old, narrator protagonist is at an awkward age, but storytelling doesn t get the best of her She s emotionally unstable but overly reserved read is a teenage girl , and Pei s deft balance of these two characteristics bring a new viewpoint to the traditional bildungsroman When Karen is uncomfortable, so is the reader When Karen is angry, so is the reader It s not just that we feel for her, we feel along with her If this were one of [...]


    8. A solid coming of age novel about a 15 year old girl who leaves Chicago to spend the summer in small town Missouri with her aunt I found myself weirdly cross identifying with both the teenage girl and the 30 something aunt The book occasionally drags, and sometimes the voices and thoughts of the women don t quite ring true, but overall Pei captures that heightened timelessness of the last summer before you start driving, get a job, and really begin to grow up.
