I'm being generous giving this book 3 stars I really wanted to like this book than I do but just can't muster the energy to do so I am a few years younger than the author but grew up in the same area played at the same park rode my bicycle on the same sidewalks and that Lighthouse bridge and fished and played in the Earman River and because of this I thought I would have a stronger affinity to the stories than I did But I don'tThe writing style reminded me of a product of a high school English class essay or maybe a 100 level college creative writing class I feel bad writing that because the book is obviously a very personal expression of memories of the writer but maybe best left as a series of blog posts rather than committed to print formAnd her memories of some shared events just don't jibe with mine Perhaps sentiment clouds those memories
