The Sledding Hill by Chris Crutcher

Billy Bartholomew is dead but that isn't keeping him from helping out his best friend Eddie Proffit and narrating this story. Eddie has lost both his father and his best friend in less than a month's time and now he has stopped talking. That is until the ultra-conservative Reverend Tarter decides to use him to help ban a book.

A really simple story about complex things, classic Crutcher.

Highly Recommended
