Gentlehands

Cock But Skye and Buddy fall in love anyway And every once in a while they visit Buddy's estranged grandfather who makes them forget they're from opposite sides of town Then a reporter appears searching for a man known as G. Oh boy The thing I find truly useful about this book is its exploration of the heavy themes of the Holocaust without being a Holocaust book Written at a time 1978 when one s grandfather could have been a Nazi strongman in a concentration camp the story doesn t center on the terrible things Buddy s grandfather might have done instead the focus is on Buddy trying to find his way as a blue collared townie in love with a super rich girl outside of Montauk New York Without spoiling I ll ask Can humans change Is redemption possible Are there crimes so godawfully heinous that they cannot be forgiven This book shows its age only because tape decks polyester and Barbra Streisand are no longer de rigeur otherwise the eternal themes of love loss and betrayal are poignantly rendered in this early offering from a master of teen literature
