My biggest quibble with the book is its treatment of a secondary character, Jeremy, who is HIV positive.

So this book was set in High School, in the beginning there were journal entries of the three boys who were the main character. This book was actually a bit too old for me, maybe lets just say wayy too old for me, I stopped readin ...more
