Jerry Spinelli ´ 9 review read ´ E-book, or Kindle E-pub ´ Jerry Spinelli Eggs author Jerry Spinelli characters Ä 9 Nine year old David has recently lost his mother to a freak accident his salesman father is constantly on the road and he is letting his anger out on his grandmother Sarcastic and bossy 13 year old Pr I loved Eggs Loved loved loved it for its injured soul and complicated characters and simple imagery I can see why many readers were put off by it and why it s viewed as one of his minor novels there s a darkness and coarseness to the book Its characters are often unpleasant and there s no riveting plot or easily summed up moralThe central characters of Eggs are nine year old Dave and thirteen year old Primrose Both are dealing with some parental loneliness Dave s mom died in a freak accident and his dad works all day The his loving grandmother pulls him in the further he pushes away Primrose s mother has a screw or two loose and her dad disappeared leaving nothing but a picture for his daughterAnd so the two are drawn together It s a strange relationship but it s the kind of strange that feels real They sneak out and have mini adventures each night and kind hearted eccentric Refrigerator John looks after themWhat I love about the relationship between Dave and Primrose is that it doesn t feel out of a story book The pair are wounded and neurotic often lashing out at each other but uickly forgetting their feuds Often characters in novels who suffer from loss or absence of family cope in noble ways that bring out their bravest and most independent personalities they re lovable and kind because those are the heroes authors want us to root for Eggs isn t that type of book Dave and Primrose turn their wounds into moodiness and desperation not resolve and empathy yet you still love themThe book gracefully bounces from perspective to perspective from scene to uintessential scene The climax is moving and elegantly ties together many of the images and ideas Spinelli develops throughout the novel The final chapter shifts the tone a bit too jarringly towards the optimistic but still manages to feel honestI wish there were books like Eggs books that tackle complicated and dark issues like grief healing and loneliness with eually complicated and dark characters It s not for everyone but I adored Eggs and will definitely give a few Spinelli books a try
