I thought that this was an excellent book! The title makes it seem kind of dark and strange, but actually, it's extremely sad, at some parts it is kind of dark and strange, but I still really liked it.

A boot camp book that just doesn't cut it. For grit, Todd Strasser's Boot Camp is much better. For laughs, you can't beat Holes. Skip this one.
