So per-usual, I read book 2 before book 1… But, I did review book 1 before book 2! So that’s good at least!!! Anyways, I LOVED this book! It was action-filled, a little bit of romance, and was just beautiful! (Though this is a 16 and up book, due to some mention of a girls clothing choices…)

This book is about a boy, Victor. He is no longer a paperboy, now he’s a copyboy. And when his good friend passes away and asks a very specific request from Vic. Victor agrees to take Mr. Spiro’s ashes to New Orleans, to find the place where the river meets the sea.

I love this book! It was so much fun to read! There’s action, romance, awesomeness! However, there is some curses. And some violence due to the hurricane… To be honest, those parts I didn’t really care about. The parts that I was like… ehhhh… Were when Victor meets this girl who is kind-of crude. She is a fisherman daughter, she’s lived in New Orleans all her life, so her manners are a little bit different. So there is mention of her bra once. (She rolled in stinging grass and had to brush it off her back) She wears very short shorts. And she has this guy who really likes her, but she doesn’t like him. And she says all he wanted was pants. (Codewords.) Other than that, the book was very good!

Over all, I do suggest this book! Yes there is some crude language, but sadly this is our world now-a-days. So, I still suggest this book! (But 16 and up.) I hope you all have a wonderful day!!!! -The Young Llama Reader.
