    Amaryllis review á 104 AmaryllisI picked this book up at the book fair for two reasons first it is Vietnam war era fiction and I'm always looking for books that will hook the boys Second the setting is Singer Island Florida I grew up not far from there and visited a family member there often during the late 60's With all those personal connections I couldn't put it down Though the language and themes may be a little mature for some 7th graders most will engage in it and get an accurate picture of the confusing time the characters Frank and Jimmy and I grew up in

    Amaryllis review á 104 AmaryllisI liked the topic the author chose and I like the style he used The letters home to start each chapter was great But I had a hard time finding the plot There wasn't much of a rise and fall Maybe one unexpected twist that was really sad but that was it I think I'm losing faith in historical fiction because my last book I read was just like this one The ending of both weren't nearly as great as I thought they would be They both just ended f
