I really enjoyed this book. The characters are fun and likable. A coming of age story that just about everyone can relate to. Looking forward to more stories of August Barton.

My Thoughts - Story
What a fun and quick read that had me laughing and following along with Augie and Grandma Gertie. I found this story so engaging with Gertie helping Augie deal with his fear of coming out of his comfort zone.

The secondary characters were an integral part of this story and the author did a wonderful job of developing them into Augie’s story.

Even though you may not like reading books with teenage males being the main character, the author incorporates so much of the other characters that you end up being endeared to Augie and his crew of misfits!

The only problem I had with this book is how quickly it ended. I wanted more of Augie and his antics!

This is a great debut story from Ms. LeBlanc.

5.0 out of 5 stars Quirky and poignant! A 4.5-starred debut! 3 April 2017
By Jen Valencia - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
This was such a pleasant surprise of a read. It was short, but it had heart and I found myself quite entertained and engrossed in Augie's triumphs and tribulations during his first year in college. Gertie, who is Augie's grandmother and happens to be rather proud of her status as a former prostitute, is a hoot! She was this unexpected breath of fresh air and I love how Isaac--Augie's roommate--took to her so easily as did quite a few of Augie's other peers. Jennifer LeBlanc didn't dwell on unnecessary details, choosing instead to skip weeks or months to focus on the more pressing moments in Augie's life, and I, for one, am not complaining. The fact that I didn't sit around wondering if I had missed anything highlights how LeBlanc never left me guessing, giving brief explanations as to what happened--if necessary--in between chapters. The Tribulations of August Barton ends on a very happy note, but with this being the first in a series, I'm curious to see what lies ahead for one Augie Barton. This gets 4.5 stars. ♥
4.0 out of 5 stars Quirky, Awkward Auggie 13 April 2017
By Amazon Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
Poor Auggie. He’d just like a nice quiet life. But Grandma Gertie and her bestie aren’t going to let opportunities to be the hero pass him by. And along the way, Auggie might just brighten the lives of a bunch of people around him.

Auggie is, to put it mildly, awkward and quirky. He reminds me a bit of Robert Pattinson’s character, Daniel Gale, in How to Be, except Augie–with the support of his friends and family–ends up far more successful.

Recommended to those who enjoy Coming of Age stories. Four stars.
