The beguiling fourteen-year-old narrator of IN ZANESVILLE is a late bloomer. She is used to flying under the radar-a sidekick, a third wheel, a marching band dropout, a disastrous babysitter, the kind of girl whose Eureka moment is the discovery that "fudge" can't be said with an English accent. Luckily, she has a best friend, a similarly undiscovered girl with whom she shares the everyday adventures of a 1970s American girlhood, incidents through which a world is revealed, and character is forged. In time, their friendship is tested-- by their families' claims on them, by a clique of popular girls who stumble upon them as if they were found objects, and by the first, startling, subversive intimations of womanhood. With dry wit and piercing observation, Jo Ann Beard shows us that in the seemingly quiet streets of America's innumerable Zanesvilles is a world of wonders, and that within the souls of the awkward and the overlooked often burns something radiant and unforgettable.… (lisätietoja)

Finished this, but it was a slog to get there. Not sure what I'll say about it for book club.

Beard paints a picture with her words, I could feel myself in the story and in the mind of the 14 year old protagonist. The begining of the book is engaging and funny. It propells the reader into the world of two best friends navigating their way through the months before and during ther first year of high school. The middle drags a bit and it feels like the plot is lost unitl it returns towards the end. ( )

didn't enjoy the story, the characters, the humour. my only reaction was to feel sorry for the mom. ( )

Light on plot, this novel's strength is the way that it portrays the intersection between childhood and adulthood. The narrator grapples with issues of identity and friendship and romantic relationships and and depression and then comes home and climbs under the dining room table fort to play with her little brother. I find that I'm at a stage in my life that I read this (or rather, listened to it, since I had the audiobook) more from the perspective of a parent than as a former fourteen-year-old. I'm sure part of this is self-defense since I make it a point to not think in any detail about the time when I was between ages eleven and seventeen, but mostly it's just because I am the mother of an eleven-year-old now and can relate to the confusion and frustration that the narrator's mother feels. I can see her trying her best to figure out how to deal with an unpredictable daughter on the cusp of adulthood while also dealing with her job and her marriage and household responsibilities.

The novel was also a rather fun look back at the parenting styles of the mid-1970's. I assume it's mid-70's...there's some overlap between the TV shows in the book---"Scooby-Doo," "Romper Room," "Captain Kangaroo"---and those I watched in my early childhood in the late 70's and early 80's, but there was also an awareness of earlier programs, like "Gidget," "Lassie," and "The Patty Duke Show." Even without pinpointing the year, it's amusing to look back at the chain-smoking, casual drinking-and-driving parenting style. I mean, her mom drops her daughter off for a sleepover at the home of a friend the mother's never met, and she drives away without talking to the adult in charge to make sure there are no loaded firearms or BPAs in the house. And she lets her teenager walk home from school alone and isn't arrested for it. How quaint.

But while this novel was a source of nostalgia, it didn't really capture my attention as a novel. There was little direction or real plot to pull me along. I did like it enough to finish it, though, so there's that. ( )

This book was well-written and the characters well-observed, but I wanted...something more to happen? Also, I get twitchy and uncomfortable when I read about friendships falling apart, but YMMV. ( )
