Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close by Jonathan Safran Foer

Burnside


The horror of 9/11 filtered through the perspective of our nine-year-old narrator Oskar Schell. I love the insight into his Grandma and her letters, as well as how deeply he feels and how he expresses himself. It's heartbreaking, gorgeous, and so emotionally poignant. This book has been one of my favourites for nearly 10 years. - Emma
