it was amazing
bookshelves: fiction, young-adult-lit, realistic
Read in September, 2011

I was a little skeptical about this book as it's written in second person from a male's point of view. Writing a convincing second person narrative is difficult anyway, but to attempt to also write a teenage boy's voice in a convincing manner is VERY difficult. Benoit did so beautifully. He wasn't afraid to really tell the reader what a teenage boy would be thinking in each situation, nor was he afraid to explore the realities of high school with all of its cruelties. Wonderful.
