Definitely! Absolutely loved this coming of age story. The writing was brilliant and the narrator was incredible. I found myself feeling as if I was actually in the story with Charlie, Sam and Patrick. I was actually sad for the story to end!
It was so relatable for so many teens these days! So many social issues were discussed from the perspective of a somewhat lost teen (suicide, drugs, sex, school....all of these were covered). And it gives hope for those that are lost or unpopular and feel like they are living for nothing.
Charlie, without a doubt!
There were so many moments that moved me. I found myelf laughing out loud one minute and wiping tears from my eyes the next. The writing was absolutley amazing!!!
As an adult and mother of two boys, I wasn't quite sure what I would think of this book or if I would even like it. All I can say is.....Wow! I am so glad I bought this and plan to have my boys read it when they are old enough. It was so inspirational on so many levels. I fell in love with the characters and was so shocked by the twist at the end. Charlie is every kid who is a little "different" and who others see as a "freak" or a "weirdo". And yet...he's not. He is just dealing with issues that nobody, including Charlie, understands. And he makes it through!! This story was amazing to me!
Kept me guessing!
Not really sure but I really enjoyed it and will buy more Lisa Gardner books.
Really did not care for the narrators attempt at Boston accents. The accent came and went from sentence to sentence and at times it was difficult to know who was supposed to be speaking. Would've enjoyed it more without the terrible accents!
Made me hold my breath several times and had me gripping the steering wheel extra tight while driving!
Great story if you can get past the narration!
