Okay for Now, by Gary D. Schmidt

Okay for Now is about a boy called Doug who lives in a town called Marysville and has to live a life there. Okay for Now is geared towards young adults. Doug has 2 older brothers called Lucas and Christopher. Lucas served in the Vietnam War. Lucas is now blind and has had both his legs amputated. Christopher was accused of robbing 2 stores. One store twice. When Doug goes to school he has all that mess as a reputation. Everyone judges him by his brothers actions. Doug wants to leave Marysville and he doesn’t want to be judged. But then Doug learns to draw and Marysville opens up. Does Doug really want to leave? I thought Okay for Now was a really good book. This book is sad, happy, and funny at the same time. Five Stars. Have a great day!!! -annaleeliz and Buttons
