Robert Cormier, Dan Krovatin (Illustrator).

by Robert Cormier First published 1999. Showing 1-12 of 12. Frenchtown Summer (Mass Market Paperback). Published May 27th 2009 by Laurel Leaf. Mass Market Paperback, 128 pages. Author(s): Robert Cormier, Dan Krovatin (Illustrator). ISBN: 0440228549 (ISBN13: 9780440228547).

Book Condition: Ex-library book. Cormier wrote nearly twenty books for young adults. His best known book was THE CHOCOLATE WAR, often a cause for censorship and contention in school and community libraries. The item shows wear from consistent use, but it remains in good condition and works perfectly. All pages and cover are intact (including the dust cover, if applicable). It has never been out of print in the past thirty-plus years, however, which tells you something. I've only read one other Cormier book, OTHER BELLS FOR US TO RING, another coming-of-age tale set in the WWII era, and excellent.

Picked up this book at a library sale yesterday. FRENCHTOWN SUMMER is a slim book at barely a hundred pages, and a quick read, thirty prose poems, no doubt highly autobiographical, from the prolific late Robert Cormier. Narrator young Eugene takes us through the summer he turned twelve in the largely French Catholic tenements of Monument, Massachusetts. (Think Leominster's French-Canadian quarter where Cormier grew up in the twenties and thirties.) Many of the pieces center on the mystery that is Eugene's taciturn father, often out of work, laid off from the comb factory, brooding in the kitchen, a Chesterfield smoldering in an ashtray. Or the unsolved crime of a young girl slain before Eugene was born, a striped tie wound round her throat. He wonders about his bachelor uncle, who never wore a tie, yet a box of tie tacks are found in his room upon his death. He worries about his unconfessed sin, "those moist moments in my bed at night," and whether he is doomed "forever to the fires of hell." There is the magical and sharp vision of his first pair of glasses. Or there is the red airplane glimpsed in a neighborhood back yard, and then it disappears.

There is much to think about here, in these pieces often dark and frightening. It is a concise meditation on the coming-of-age theme. FRENCHTOWN SUMMER was one of Cormier's last books, published in 1999. He died the following year, at 75. Cormier wrote nearly twenty books for young adults. His best known book was THE CHOCOLATE WAR, often a cause for censorship and contention in school and community libraries. It has never been out of print in the past thirty-plus years, however, which tells you something. I've only read one other Cormier book, OTHER BELLS FOR US TO RING, another coming-of-age tale set in the WWII era, and excellent. So is this one. Very highly recommended.

Frenchtown Summer is a book written in verse form. It is written from the point of view of Eugene, a 12-year-old, and tells the story of his summer living in Frenchtown, hence the title.
I was disappointed in this book. When I first saw it, I thought since it was short it would be very easy to read. This book was 113 pages long, but it took me 4 days to read it, which is sad since usually I finish books in this format in a day.
This book has no plot. All it is is this kid telling about different things that happened in his summer. The only thing close to a plot is him feeling separated from his family, especially his father, and then at the end he finally feels close to him. But that is just a minor part of the story, the rest of it is just descriptions of random things. The first few chapters aren't too boring or anything. They set the stage and setting for what seems like a good story. But then the rest of the chapters pretty much just describe random things. All of those random chapters are tied together slightly, but not enough to make it a good story.
If you are looking for an action-packed story, find another book. Even if you are looking for a book that describes a 12-year-old's summer, there are better books out there. If you are looking for a good book of poems that tells a good story, tying in the random chapters really well, there are also better books out there. Try Out of the Dust by Karen Hesse or What My Mother Doesn't Know by Sonya Sones. If you are looking for a book that you can finish fast and read easily, don't be misled, this isn't one of them. This book just doesn't have that element that good books have that keep you wanting to read more. Sure, it's not the most boring book I've read, but it's sure one of them.
The way the verses are written isn't bad. They are actually written pretty well. This is a talented author, but this book isn't one of his best.

I really enjoy Robert Cormier's novels. I've read several of them and enjoy the Monument, Frenchtown setting particularly of some of them. I also like YA novels in verse, Hesse's "Witness" and Koertge's "Shakespeare Bats Cleanup," for instance, are terrific. Other reviewers here have quoted the first four lines of the book: "That summer in Frenchtown/ in the days/ when I knew my name/ but did not know who I was./ Perhaps I would have liked Eugene's story more a few years later when he did know who he was. This was uninvolving. Cormier's heroes tend to be lonely and loners, observers as Eugene is, but he's so very cut off.

I imagine I will *love* the next Cormier novel I read.
