Coast of Akron - Adrienne Miller I added this book because I read it probably 5 years ago and still think about it regularly. I have read a lot of mixed reviews of this book, and I just don't see how anyone could fail to love it. The characters and images from Adrienne Miller's debut novel have never left me. I remember entire passages and scenes all this time later, and believe me, I've read a lot of books since then, as I read 4-5 a week sometimes and almost never fewer than 1 book a week. I cannot at all explain all the people who didn't love this book. It baffles me.
