Forgotten Friday: Okay for Now by Gary D. Schmidt

This meme is about books that have been pushed aside while others have gone viral and made into movies. It can be old books, new books, any book that never got its (or enough) time  in the spot light.

Okay for Now is a novel that can speak to anyone of every age. It's about a young boy named Doug who deals with all the challenges that comes with living in an unstable household. Doug has such a unique voice, it drew me in from the beginning. I would venture to say that Doug has the most distinct voice that I have ever read in a book. His point of view gives a whole new perspective on a abusive situation. It's a coming of age book about family, PTSD, love, and the struggles of just being a kid.

You guys can check out my full review of this book here.
