really liked it
Read in January, 1996

A fictional story based on an ansetor of the author. There was a lot of controversy over this this book and the author settled out of court for an account of plagerism that he contended was accidental on his part.

Even with the surrounding controversy I found this story to be emotionally captivating and well written. This is another book I read in high school.
