Book Review: Cloudy-Bright

Cloudy-Bright by John Rowe Townsend

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I reread this book every few years, and it usually starts with insomnia. I’m up in the middle of the night, and I think, I’ll read this old boring book about photography and that will put me to sleep.
But then I get caught up in the story, and I remember why I gave this clever little book 5 stars! Before I know it, I’m not the least bit sleepy, and I’ve read half the book!

Sam needs a camera to win the photography contest at his college, so he borrows Jenny’s camera, but doesn’t realize that Jenny comes along with it.  The two are thrown together in a few funny situations, and through many ups and downs they become unlikely friends with a little romance simmering between photographs.

Sam is such a lovable idiot, and Jenny is so deliciously innocent and dreamy. I just love their clever dialogue.

Maybe it’s the nostalgia for my childhood, since I first read this at age 14, but all these years of rereading has not diminished my enjoyment of this book at all!
