August and Then Some Review Á E-book, or Kindle E-pub New York City By day JT Savage is a labourer on the Upper East Side; by night an insomniac in an East Vill. Overall I thought this was a good book The writing was great and poignant Prete does a good job of capturing the tones of the disenfranchised and an uneducated but extremely likeable pregnant teenager This is a dark book and you won t feel happy when you finish it but almost at peace I was able to connect with the characters Stephanie was great and one of the best characters I have read in a while SPOILERMy problem with this book was the fact that nothing was done about a father molesting his daughter In what world would a judgetherapist not sayoh hey this guy is a molester lets do something about it At first I thought it was going to come out that JT made the whole thing up when the mom was saying that he always exaggerates things I get that was why JT wanted to steal the carbut I still cannot believe his therapist wouldn t have done anything about it I also could not understand why Nokey s father was so hell bent on getting JT to talk to his father and why it seemed like JT almost forgave him How in the world could you ever forgive a father that did those awful things
