This is one of the few books that I still cherish from my teenage years. I remember feeling all kinds of emotions after reading this book. It helped me get through some tough times.

This book is probably equivalent to The Fault in Our Stars of my days.

I used this book with a year 10 English class (NZC level 5) and it worked really well. I was running 7 novels at a time and it was one which related to the generic theme "coping with a struggle" and it also had some strong characterisation which the students could draw on.

In my sappy teen fiction days this was the best of all the coming of age-type 'real' stories I read. Issues with race, class, and mortality...in 14 year-old sized chunks.
