I’ve heard mentions of this book, for almost as long as I can remember, however, just the other day, I finally added it to my list of “books-to-read”, (unfortunately, it was never assigned to me to read, in school or I may have found it long ago), and now to hear he’s passed is really quite sad, but hearing everyone talk about the book, and him, once again, really motivates me to go read it already! :)

This was such a great book, i’m really glad they made us read this in school. My favorite quote is: If a girl looks swell when she meets you, who gives a damn if she’s late? Nobody.
