Crutcher had some nice ideas in this book, however I felt like it fell a bit short of its potential. The stories felt rushed and uneditted (don't even get me started about the grammar) in a way that made me think of an uneditted NANOWRIMO novel. The characters were almost well developed but there was something missing from each of them.
Perhaps the biggest dissapointment for me was that I was expecting a book where I would get to see these kids in the group and how it effected them. I ened up getting a book where it seemed more like I was reading the stories of before they became part of the group. There didn't seem to be much of a change in the characters from the beginning to the end so I found myself wondering what the point was.
In summary I found this to be an interesting read with some nice points but it wasn't as effective as it could have been.
