Don't let the Wind Catch you by Aaron Paul Lazar

Welcome to my review of "Don't let the Wind Catch You" by Aaron Paul Lazar!  Also enter on the Rafflecopter to win prizes and join the facebook Event today.
When young Gus LeGarde befriends a cranky old hermit in the woods who speaks to an Indian spirit, he wonders if the man is nuts. But when the ghostly Penni rattles tin cups, draws on dusty mirrors, and flips book pages, pestering him to find evidence to avenge her past, things change.

What Gus doesn’t understand is why his mother hates Tully, until his relentless investigation uncovers a hint of scandal about Tully and Gus’s grandfather, Marlowe Wright.

On horseback, Gus and his friends ride through woods overlooking Conesus Lake to Tully’s abandoned house, reportedly still infected with the Genesee Valley Fever from the 1700s. Unafraid, they enter and find shocking evidence that could rewrite history.

Can Gus convince his mother to forgive Tully? And will the proof he found free Penni’s spirit?

Gus summons courage beyond his years in this poignant and powerful telling of the summer of 1965.

My Review:
This is one of the best coming of age stories I have read in a very long time.  I just adore Gus and his friends.  
Aaron does an amazing job with his character building and storytelling. I literally could visualize the book as a movie while I was reading it.
Once you read this novel you will want to go out and buy a horse and ride through the woods just like I did :)
I recommend this book to absolutely everyone.
