Book of the Week (1)

Book of the Week is a weekly meme hosted by yours truly.

Here's how it works: 
Book of the Week is a weekly meme where bloggers feature one (1) book every week that they have recently read. All books featured on Book of the Week are considered entries for the Book of the Month, another meme hosted and made by me, where bloggers choose entries from their Book of the Week and hail them as Book of the Month. At the end of the year, bloggers will also pick an outstanding book from their Book of the Month list and name that book the Book of the Year.

So, without further ado, my book of of the week is:

 Being Henry David by Cal Armistead

Seventeen-year-old "Hank" has found himself at Penn Station in New York City with no memory of anything --who he is, where he came from, why he's running away. His only possession is a worn copy of Walden, by Henry David Thoreau. And so he becomes Henry David-or "Hank" and takes first to the streets, and then to the only destination he can think of--Walden Pond in Concord, Massachusetts. Cal Armistead's remarkable debut novel is about a teen in search of himself. Hank begins to piece together recollections from his past. The only way Hank can discover his present is to face up to the realities of his grievous memories. He must come to terms with the tragedy of his past, to stop running, and to find his way home
