I read this book during my teens. Most of the books I'd read up until that point were from the female POV, so it was interesting to see it from the male's side. Well written and unputdownable!

I have had this book on my shelve for about 2 years at least, I just never seemed to get round to it. But as I was having a readathon this week, I cleared my locker at work of books and brought them all home to read and this happened to be in there.
To be honest I didn't know much about them apart from the fact that they appear to be Girly/contemporary novels but told from a boys point of view. This is quite a rare occurrence so that piqued my curiosity. I mean from the cover design it's clear th

Jag gillade den här boken. Den var mycket djupare än jag hade förväntat mig och är nog den bästa boken jag läst av Cann hittills. Jag tycker att boken är en bra skildring över hur många känner i min ålder (15 och äldre), det här att man tycker att skolan är tråkig och att man vill klara sig själv.
I actually found that this book was pretty intresting. It was a story about a guy who doesn't have more cash but definately wishes he were wealthy. Rich (the protagonist) is secretly in love with a girl who isn't exactly in his league. Eventually Rich's wish comes true and he has more money than he can count. Although Rich gets all the money he could ask for it starts to bring him issues later in the novel.

i honestly picked this book only because i thoght the cover art was intresting and i know

Not a bad book at all. The main character is so painfully 17, though. Wish I could shake him to make him get a grip.

Good Book - simple but effective in portraying the need for cash against life - for a youngster anyway. Enjoyed it from beginning to end.

100 pages in and the kid is incredibly irritating.

it was just too tough to look past how annoying the kid was.

When I was a child, I wanted to be a witch. My first foray into writing was a series of nasty spells full of rats’ tails and bats’ wings. Then, when I turned thirteen, I began keeping a lurid diary, full of adoration or loathing, depending on who I was writing about. I used my later diaries for the Diving In trilogy.

I never thought ‘I want to be a writer’, but I loved books and writing. At school
