    Chasing Fireflies

    On the surface this is a fun story about teenage hijinks, but lurking in the background is a consideration of some of life’s big questions. The story focuses on three teens. Atticus who prefers to go by the nickname Fitz is the protagonist, but two girls, Maddie and Tamsin, figure prominently in the story as well. When a schoolmate dies these three decide to honor her in their own unique way. In the planning and execution of this tribute (details would be a bit of a spoiler) Fitz and his sidekicks gain a fuller, more mature perspective on life. Yeah, they grow up just a bit. While an obvious fit for the young adult reader, it's a story that will appeal to an older crowd, too. Even grandfathers like me. **Originally written for "Books and Pals" book blog. May have received a free review copy. **

    Awesome book

    As a fan of slice of life/coming-of-age/adventure books (ie. Catcher in the Rye), and movies like Paper Towns, Edge of Seventeen, or any 80s John Cusack/teen flick really, I loved Chasing Fireflies. It's one of those stories that doesn't have much of a plot, which is awesome. It's very realistic and entertaining (I was laughing out loud through most of it). And I could totally relate to the main character, Atticus, his train of thought was like my own and brought me back to my high school days, and reminded me of what it was like to be a teen. My favorite characters were Buckle and Mickey, they were hilarious. Overall, GREAT book!

    An entertaining coming of age story.

    Imogen Rose has taken a shift from YA Paranormal to write a coming of age story. I have long been a fan of her writing and was not disappointed by this story. Her grasp of the thoughts and emotions of a teen on the verge of adulthood is very realistic. This is not a heavy depressing book but it manages to entertain while facing some serious subjects in a very convincing manor. The characters all seemed real and there reactions to situations struck me as very authentic. I felt a strong sense of satisfaction at the end of this book.
