      Vicky from Dayton, OH: I just finished ABOUT A BOY yesterday and must say I was pleasantly surprised. I am a bookseller and read quite a few new (read: "undiscovered") authors. The book was hilarious and touching without being overly sentimental. It's one I will recommend to customers. Besides being a bookseller, I am also a writer/5().   Just a Boy and a Girl in a Little Canoe  by Sarah Mlynowski is a book I was excited for since I love a a summer camp setting. The descriptions of the camp the main character works at are vivid, and it was easy to imagine being there. However, I disliked her immaturity and the way she continually attempts to justify cheating on her boyfriend.
