"A didn't-see-that-coming ending wraps up the story on a note of well-earned hope and will leave readers with plenty to think about." (Publishers Weekly)
"Myers' narrative strategy is so inherently dramatic that it captures his readers' attentions and imaginations, inviting not only empathy but also thoughtful discussion." (Booklist)
This is a very intresting book, it has a very good story line,it's a little confusing at times but nothing to bad. There is obviously drug content in this book and there's alot of it and frequent profanity the F word is used twice, but the book also has good ( in my opinion ) things behind it such as what can happen when you use drugs and it made me see how i'm lucky to not have to deal with this stuff. This book i think would not be good for younger kids but it depends on how mature youre kid is.
