Fruit: A Novel About a Boy and His NipplesFruit: A Novel About a Boy and His Nipples by Brian Francis

My rating: 3 of 5 stars


It was enjoyable and amusing but not amazing. I did find it sort of cool that it's set in Sarnia and I happen to be in Sarnia at the moment. However, I think the story itself has a universality to it despite a very specific setting. I think it did seem almost cliched in parts, especially with the groups/cliques in high school, but there was a freshness to the book too, like Peter's bedroom movies, his point of view itself, the religion aspect and of course, his nipples. I liked the slice-of-life aspect of the book; it was definitely more of a character study than a plot-driven book. I think the character's voice and the events in the story felt authentic and I definitely liked the hopeful/happy ending.
