  Harris and Me: A Summer Remembered by Gary Paulsen

Review by: Taylor G.
Ohio, Grade 7

I read a book called Harris and Me, It is by Gary Paulsen. The book takes place at a farm. The farm has corn, wheat, and a barn that has rusty gutters wood on the side to hit Ernie. The barn is close to the pig pen. Where Me goes to because Me’s parents are drinkers and he got taken away from his parent to go to the Larson’s for the summer and do lots playing with Harris and they always got in trouble the whole summer. The main characters are Harris, ”Me” Clair, Glennis, knute, Louie, and Buzzer. He is the cat who could kill anything gets on his dark side. Harris is nine years old and he doesn’t wear shirts or shoes all he wears is freckles and bibs and he has blond hair and he is missing two teeth in the front of his mouth. Glennis has blond hair freckles her face is sun burned her teeth is white. Louie is covered in dirt and grease. He has a beard with bits of dirt and saw dust, and has dried cow manure and dribbled spit and bits of tobacco. Louie is toothless and has blue eyes. Clair is a sweet caring person she cares about everyone around before she cares about herself. Knute is the best uncle “Me” ever had. He drinks a lot of coffee.
