The Tribulations of August Barton is a new adult coming of age book written by Jennifer LeBlanc. Augie was a somewhat geeky and introverted creature of habit, who, at the lofty age of eighteen, was convinced that he would absolutely hate his college experience. As he dragged his stuff through the dorm, the party atmosphere he was met with only confirmed his misgivings. When he reached his assigned room, he was further dismayed to find his roommate was already there. Opening the door, he beheld his athletic roomie setting up his side of the room. The classy stuff he was pulling out of his leather bag made Augie suddenly reluctant to disclose the contents of his own: the Dr. Who pajamas, Marvel posters and action figures. Isaac was good-looking and seemed to instinctively know how to dress and act as a student, and he was majoring in mechanical engineering. He didn’t get Augie’s being interested in gerontology or having it as his major. Who would be that interested in old folks anyway? But then again, Isaac hadn’t met Gertie, Augie’s grandmother, yet, so he really had no idea.

Jennifer LeBlanc’s coming of age story for new adults, The Tribulations of August Barton, is an hilarious and life-affirming tale that kept me enthralled and thrilled throughout my entire reading experience. I love LeBlanc’s Augie whose geekiness, romanticism and kind heart make him so very special. Seeing as his outrageous grannie and her best friend, Tunes, drag him kicking and screaming into life is sheer joy. LeBlanc’s story is beautifully written, and her characters are finely drawn and unforgettable. And, like Isaac, I suspect anyone who has the good fortune to come across this book will see senior citizens in an entirely different way afterwards. The Tribulations of August Barton is most highly recommended.”
