Write Naked
by Peter Gould 
ISBN: 9780374384838

Sixteen-year-old Victor, a thoughtful loner who tries to live his life "under the radar," wants to test out the saying "You have to be naked to write." When he sneaks off with an old Royal typewriter to his uncle's cabin deep in the Vermont woods and strips off his clothes, he expects Thoreau-like solitude. What he gets is something else--both funny and, as his high school English teacher likes to say, "transformative." For he discovers a face in the window watching him--Rose Anna, a homeschooled free spirit with an antique fountain pen and a passion to save the planet. Their unexpected encounter marks the beginning of an inspired writing partnership--and a relationship as timeless and eager as the Vermont woods in spring. A strikingly original debut novel that introduces two storytellers with different kinds of tales: one--in Victor's unforgettable voice--a quirky, contemporary love story; the other--by Rose Anna--an ecological fantasy featuring a tiny heroic newt. Together, the teens explore the possibility of connections - to one another, the woods outside, and the world beyond.

I'm impressed at his intelligence level. I probably would have figured out a way to strap the typewriter onto my bike, but I wouldn't have taken the path his brain did. Vietnam and the Ho Chi Minh Trail led him to the idea. Interesting.

This book seemed a little boring on Monday, but today I enjoyed reading the next chapter.

I don't think giving inanimate objects "voices" like Victor does is all that uncommon. I think it's pretty creative.

When i first heard the title and read the summary of this book, I thought 'Eww. NAKED?' It just seemed kinda weird. It is definitely original, though.
