Book Review: Forgive Me, Leonard Peacock
Title: Forgive Me, Leonard Peacock
Author: Mattew Quick
Teen Reviewer: Julia Denaro
Rating: 4.5/5 Stars
This book is about Leonard Peacock's 18th birthday, the day he will kill his ex-best-friend Asher Beal and himself. The story tells of Leonard’s four friends. To each one, Leonard gives a pink-wrapped present containing something to remember him by. After he gives out his last gift, he plans to end his life.
This book is a masterpiece, written in a way that makes the reader think about everyday events and issues differently. This book beautifully tells a story of a teenager’s horrible life changed for the better. I would recommend this book to 10th graders and on because of the language and certain actions.
I would give this book a 4 ½ out of 5 for the excellent detail and great plot.
