ExchangeFollowing the death of his parents 16 year old Simon moves into his grandparents' claustrophobic bungalow which uickly becomes a refuge from his bullying peers U This book was pleasantly entertaining but it did not keep me riveted on the edge of my seat or absolutely captivated It was a book that I could take out when I was bored yet still not be completely immersed in it This story is about a teenage boy whose parents die so he has to go live with his grandparents He and his grandma bond over their love of books while this same love distances them from his grandfather Over one of their town excursions they discover a place called The Great Big Book Exchange where they meet the gothic Kelly and Terrance the man with two plastic arms In this store Simon makes friends in the books and in the people who work there While his Grandma reconnects with her pasthere come the spoilers But the plot was refreshing because it wasn't your typical YA novel; the boy and girl don't end up together the passionate affair is not an affair at all the reunion isn't a happy ever after kind of thing and the grandma stays with the crazy alcoholic husband Now while these things sound highly unpleasant they weren't They were actually the best part of the book Nothing ended up the way you thought it would and even though it seems like it had a terrible ending it didn't There were no loose ends the characters were happy That's another plus; the characters seemed real I could totally relate to them about the being in love with books part not the parents being dead or having in an alcoholic husband or grandfather or having two plastic arms or being a goth They were completely eccentric original characters and I could relate to them they made me wish that a place like The Great Big Book Exchange really existed
