I read “As Cool As I Am” a couple of weeks ago. It’s a book written by Great Falls resident Pete Fromm, and it concerns the life of Lucy Diamond, a teenager who lives in Great Falls. It’s not normally a book that I would read, but the setting in Great Falls was just too tempting for me – I don’t recall ever reading a book set in the community that I live in. My opinion of the book: very good. As noted by many reviewers, the character of Lucy Diamond is pretty powerful: she is one feisty young lady, and her fire carries her through some tough times as she discovers things about her parents, her friends, and what growing up means. The setting in Great Falls, and being able to identify very specific details about our town, made it a very unique read. Not an ordinary book, and one I won’t forget.
