really liked it

I enjoyed this book. Now granted this is a second hand narration from the main character to Rusty, but I could still get a picture of what was going on despite the narrators ill grammar. Moving past that, this is a tale of living inside a prison that at times can be viewed as better than being outside. There is a huge drug problem, but there was also a sense of community, especially where children are involved and it can have horrible consequences if you cross the line. There is a lot of politics and the wealthy do have their way. At times McFadden's life could be viewed mundane, but then something would take place, a new visitor or an unspeakable crime or even betrayal that would take the book on a new turn.
