The Orange Girl
by Jostein Gaarder

Buy The Book

I know this is not the author's most famous book, but it is the first one I have read and now I MUST check out the rest.  I simply could not "peal" (oranges) away from this lovely romance.  I believe I will make this a "Jostein Gaarder's collection" month.  I hope the rest are just as clean.

The tale is about a adolescent boy discovering
a highly adventurous romance of his deceased father,
his place in the world and
tough choices (can I add "and tender mercies"). 

Wonderfully romantic and surprisingly profound.  Overcome the temptation to breeze through this book without a moment of reflection. 

  Happy Reading
