My Most Excellent Year is one of my all time favorite books! This story follows three high school students, T.C., Augie, and Alé, via their English project, daily diary entries. Their individual entries bring the reader through their adventures of first loves, self discovery, and faith in Mary Poppins and Fenway Park. This Boston based story is a fun, heartwarming tale of friendship and growing up. You are guaranteed to end this book with a smile on your face.— Callie
Best friends and unofficial brothers since they were six, ninth-graders T.C. and Augie have got the world figured out. But that all changes when both friends fall in love for the first time. Enter Al. She's pretty, sassy, and on her way to Harvard. T.C. falls hard, but Al is playing hard to get. Meanwhile, Augie realizes that he's got a crush on a boy. It's not so clear to him, but to his family and friends, it's totally obvious! Told in alternating perspectives, this is the hilarious and touching story of their most excellent year, where these three friends discover love, themselves, and how a little magic and Mary Poppins can go a long way.
