Read in November, 2010

The protagonists's voice and the first-hand, ugly insight into school bullying are the most notable aspects of this book. It took several chapters for me to overlook all of the capitalized words and horrible grammar, but then I got into the character's voice enough to overlook it. I didn't like the ignorance of teachers and parents (but this does seem to be an issue in regards to bullying, so perhaps that is accurate). There is very little character change throughout the book and the end is completely unresolved, which is what the author was going for but this aspect doesn't speak to me.
