In Zanesville

By Jo Ann Beard

The life of a teenager in a dreary little town in the Midwest. Starting with a horrific babysitting experience, through school life, and being part of a poor family. The story centers around the friendship of the protagonist with another teenage girl, and the turmoil that it suffers in the process of growing up. This book was fairly interesting, but for some reason it took me a long time to finish it (about 3 weeks). I'm not quite sure why. Could simply be because I'm working a lot more. [307 pp.]
