Yesterday I was talking to a bookseller friend of mine about books, particularly on the part of the Great Summer Novel. I had picked a few at CFB and I fell in like with a few of them. But this one...this one turns summer afternoons into moments of Selah and gives me a clearer vision for the stories my soul wants me to write. This novel, of course is Uwem Akpan's "Say You're One of Them."
