I look at her shadowed shape, her eyes lit by street light. There, in the hot summer dark. I have some thing, some self-thing. An idiot’s pride. And it has a power.

A book about cruising and being on the run without going anywhere. Raw, honest and devoid of soapboxes. A good book for boys.

I did like it, but I'm positive I need to analyze this a bit further to get some of the hidden deeper meanings.

It's in a very poetic form, which was interesting. It gave my reading a sort of rhythm, like, well, a poem.

Not a particularly young book, and I wouldn't recommend it for anyone looking for a light read, because this one does make you need to think a bit.

Read on.

This is a story of things that happened in the life a 16 year old high school student. I found it a good read as it was easy to listen to and quite an interesting look into the thoughts and actions of a teenager. It was only 2 hours long.
One of my absolute favourite young-adult books.
