Bernie went on, “A fad starts as an idea, something somebody thinks people might like. So that somebody turns the idea into an actual thing. And if lots and lots and lots of people like the thing, and ridiculous numbers of them want one and get one, that’s called a fad.”“How many people have to like the thing?” asked Aggie.“So many that almost no one hasn’t heard of it, at least.”
-- pg 3, Aggie's Nine Heroes by Diana Laurence
This is an unusal book to say the least but good nonetheless. It's a YA pick that features a young girl that see's the world differently....in part from her imagination, and in part from her upbringing. You see her parents died when she was only a tot and her grandfather (Bernie) has been raising her ever sense but he's not a cookie cutter character in the least. He has an (often unspoken of) illness that while doesn't sit right out in front of him and wave hi to folks, it does or rather can interfer with day to day life in a most dramatic way. Enjoying the book so far and anticipate finishing it before week's end. Stay tuned for the review!
