See Ya Simon

 David Hill has a gift for creating believable characters and writing about sad or difficult situations in a matter of fact way.

See Ya, Simon is the story of a teenager with muscular told by one of his friends. It is sometimes funny, sometimes sad, but never mawkish, sensitive but not sentimental. It’s not a conventional happily-ever-after story, but it isn’t depressing either.

It is one of the books I re-read at least once a year and each time I read it I get more from it.
