My first reaction: This doesn't actually happen in real life...like, do the people who write about high schools just forget about everything that happened in their school, and write some stereotypical, predictable world?
And then: Oh. Despite the utter fakeness, this is really good.
Like, absolutely depressing, yet strangely uplifting...wow.
First of all, I've never met a bully quite like Shane. He seems grossly exaggerated, as most High school types are. Similarly, Will seems impossibly nerdy.
But Devon's story is real. The best. And Katie's insecurities are perfect...those two made the book, along with Will's poems. It was surprisingly good, for a bully book.
