From page one, the tone of the book immediately envelopes the reader into the setting. The attention to and description of details involves the reader in the story, and the fresh, original analogies maintain the readers interest. Fabrys ability to allow the reader to develop relationships with the characters is perhaps the strongest aspect of the novel. One notable weakness involves Fabrys lack of build-up to create tension at critical moments in the story; and, although background of characters is certainly important, there were small chunks of background that werent essential to the story.
Although the novel doesnt begin with a character in moral depravity and end with his or her salvation, Christianity is an undercurrent throughout the story. June Bug recounts a time at a VBS in which she prayed and received Jesus. Other characters beliefs are stated or implied. It is left to the reader to discover why certain characters believe the way they do, and whether it is right or wrong. Although Bible verses arent referred to, Matthew 18:3, I tell you the truth, unless you change and become like little children, you will never enter the kingdom of heaven, is evident in June Bugs simple, trusting faith. However, the theme of Christianity could easily be removed from the book without altering the storyline.
For those in search of a good book, June Bug certainly qualifies, leaving readers wishing for more pages after the last one is read. Also worth mentioning are the themes of kidnapping, semi-violent flashbacks, and sexual predators present in the book, making it appropriate for readers fourteen years of age and older.
