it was amazing
Read from August 19 to 21, 2011 — I own a copy

A haunting novel that brings us into the lives of the young people from Palo Alto, this debut is nothing short of beautiful. James Franco has taken many risks with this as he delves into a world that is unknown to many. Describing the fearful lives of these American teenagers Palo Alto is a novel with a difference. Written in a style of short stories there is a common thread through out linking it all together. The raw darkness of this book and the disturbing nature is filled with compassion, sadness and a touch of humour. I am very excited to see what Franco does next. This novel is striking and heartfelt I hope it gets the recognition it deserves.
