it was amazing
bookshelves: young-adult
Read in December, 2010

This was one of the best books I've read in a long time. The voice manages to be both lyrical and real. Characters, even minor ones, have genuine motivation for what they do. The drug use and sexuality may deter parents from wanting younger kids to read this, but they feel integral to the plot/ natural to the characters as opposed to layered on for spectacle or affect. I've already put the next book this author has set for release in February on hold at my local library. Read this.
