Read in December, 2010

I wasn't sure when I picked this book up if it was for youth readers or not. Now that I've read it, I still don't know. The characters are all in high school or just past it, but it has some serious story themes like self cutting. The main theme is disengagement: from the world of adults as well as the characters feeling unconnected from their own lives. It's a gloomy little tale and I can't recommend it.
