Finished The Best Man by Richard Peck. I received a copy for review.
I’m a relatively recent convert to middlegrade and books like this are the reason why.
Archer has a lot of great guys in his life but the three best are his dad, grandpa and uncle Paul. When he learns that his uncle’s gay, he’s a little surprised but it doesn’t really matter to him. It’s way more interesting who Paul’s dating: Mr. McLeod, Archer’s favorite teacher.
And when it seems like Paul’s a little nervous about the relationship (love can be scary), Archer is there with the best advice ever.
This is such a sweet novel, completely delightful on every page. Recommended.
