Oh, boy... I'm getting emotional as I write this because... I love this book... SO. MUCH. I LOVE this book with alll my heart... OH MY GOSH heart.

In The Song of Achilles, we get to see a retelling of the Trojan War from the perspective of young prince Patroclus, but what unfolds is a love story between Patroclus and the legendary Achilles that will sweep you away, steal your heart, and make you ache witht he best pain imaginable.

I literally re-read this book every fre months. IF you want a hauntingly beautiful book that will fill you with joy and heartach and last you a lifetime, this is it. I owe Madeline Miller my life. - Isabel

With a gentleness of wit, emotion and spot-on humor, Schmidt brings to life 6th grader Carter Jones as he navigates a tough time in his life, with the help of one Mr. Bowles-Fitzpatrick, who drives an eggplant-hued Bentley and gives advice, both needed and not wanted, as the Jones' family new butler. Interspersed with cricket references - "the finest game in the world" - wonderful and enlightened vocabulary fit for a proper gentleman, Schmidt tackles grief and abandonment with his signature insight, lightness and heart. As the butler says to his charges "make good decisions and remember who you are" -- Carter Jones' story will stay with you for a very long time. Highly recommended! - Maureen
