    eBook Shawn Stewart Ruff Ñ eBook Finlater Epub ´ Ñ 3sant.co finlater book, Finlater MOBIThis is a book I won in a Goodreads giveaway I am certainly glad I did because I would not have sought out this book on my own It is a good story about a 2 boys from completly different cultures coming togther and falling in love for the first time The thing that is so great about this book is that it is written from a 13 year old boys perspective It shows the coming of age emotions and feelings I am a grown straight white woman with nothing in common with the main character yet I relate with the characters experiences and emotions I apreciate the love and devotion he has to his friend and the tender moments they share It brought me back to my own experience with my first love as a teen and the inner conflict with craving independence from my parents while still really knowing I was a child
