Ten books that will remind you what it felt like to be a kid

At B&N Reads Jeff Somers tagged ten books that will remind you of your childhood, including:
The Mysteries of Pittsburgh, by Michael Chabon

The ’80s were a hazy time—glamorous on the surface but boiling with change underneath. You can trace a lot of the culture of the era back decades, but the 1990s ended a lot of those connections. The kids who grew up in the ’80s had a sense they’d come late to a party, and were going to have to decide if they went on to the next one, or went home. While the characters in Chabon’s debut are a little older, they’re just shedding their childhoods, so if you spent your youth in the 1980s, you’ll still recognize every single detail.
