really liked it

Eugene “Huge” Smalls is unlike any character I have discovered and one you won’t forget. Dysfunctional doesn’t come close to describing his home life with an exhibitionist sister, absent mother, and grandmother, living in a retirement home, as his best friend. With a genius level IQ and a “Here’s Johnny” type of temper he is spending the summer before the 7th grade playing detective. Inspired by his grandmother’s love of hard boiled private eyes he is on the hunt for the vandals of his grandmother’s retirement home sign. Like all great detectives “Huge” saves the girl and maybe himself as he battles his way through teen angst and his first case.

This is not a book YA book. SO don't pass it onto your pre-teen unless you have read it first.
