It's no secret that I love his books and this one is another to add to my shelf. Read the entire thing on a flight, and fell in love with Finn and Cade. No one does vomit or accidental nudity better than Andrew Smith.

I read this on a flight. There's something to be said for reading a book like this in one sitting, so that you are completely absorbed in the world of the story. But it also means an ending such as this will be far more powerful, because you are full...more

This is another example of how great YA can be. Sat down to read a couple pages and didn't move until I'd read the whole book. Kid grabs you (as does the unique second person POV) and doesn't let you go.

“My dad was never one of those dads you could ask for a quarter if you saw a gumball machine. Instead he had one of those black American Express cards not available to general public. Gumball machines didn’t have slots for those.”
S.A. Bodeen, The Compound

“Place unopened pouch in warm water for 5-10 minutes.
Unopened pouch may be laid on a warm surface.
Lay unopened pouch in direct sunlight. Not much chance of that down here.
Place unopened pouch inside you shirt, allow you body temperature to warm your MRE.

I was surprised they left out: Place unopened pouch on ground and pee on it.”
