The Most Beautiful Thing by Fiona Robyn
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
It's rare that a novel makes me truly care about a character. Fiona Robyn accomplishes that feat in The Most Beautiful Thing with the telling of Joe's story. Joe's family is dysfunctional. His mind is a maze. His feelings are confounding. His life, a mess. Following his journey from age fourteen to twenty-nine was a wonderful, voyeuristic ride that left me tearful and hopeful for his future--and completely invested in it. There is much to learn from Ms. Robyn on the art of character building.
