America was just a great novel. I think the best books are ones that change your thinking and help u develop into a better person. America is one of those books. America is a boy who sees himself as a nobody. His therapist, Dr. B asks him "where do u see yourself in five years?" America responds with "nowhere." His troubled past is so much full of despair and terrible abuse that you feel so bad for this poor kid. I recommend this to any kid who feels neglected and abused. They will understand why America says a lot of messed up things. Must warn young readers the language is dirty but its language used in real life. E.R. Frank doesn't sugarcoat anything is this book. You will hate America in the beginning but learn he's not such a bad kid after all. All he's trying to do is piece his life back together.
