did not like it
bookshelves: 2011, school
Read from July 09 to 10, 2011

I read this thinking I would pair it with You're a Good Man, Charlie Brown in a year of school productions.

Having finished the play, I know that I could only do that if I wanted to be burned at the stake in front of my school and then have my ashes put in the grossest urinal in the building to be peed on for eternity*.

Drug use, teen suicide, vulgarity, criminal activity.

There's also a homosexual relationship that I didn't like, not because people were gay, but because I didn't actually believe it. Like, I felt that the author thought, "Hey, what's another thing I could do to make grandmas faint?" and then stuck that in there. It's actually a big part of the plot, but it didn't feel real, and that threw me off.

Oh yes, and it's the Peanuts characters that do all these things. So if you're looking to have your childhood stomped on, go ahead and read it.

*This may not be true for every school.
