James Morrison is your average foul-mouthed teenager living in small-town Pennsylvania, except that he's in love with his best friend, Shannie. Cemetery Street chronicles his life, from the day he moves in next to the cemetery, to the day he leaves.

Cemetery Street was a long, engrossing personal saga. I enjoyed the characters, who I found nuanced and believable. Reading this book reminded me how much I used to swear when I was a teenager.

I have to warn anyone considering this book, however, that there are continual grammar errors and typos throughout the book. And there are a lot of flashbacks that aren't delineated obviously enough; I found myself struggling to understand certain sequences of events.

However, I enjoyed the story and would recommend it. Zunski got a few tears out of me at the end.
