really liked it
bookshelves: teen, own, bio, poison

I only picked this book up because Leonardo Decaprio was doing a movie based on this book. So I thought why not give it a try. Well being a young girl in Jr High School reading this book kinda blew my mind on everything I was taught.
Young boys, wild in the streets, drugs, girls, Priest. Wow, what a powerful book.
I dont think the movie is anything like this book. I was very disapointed when I wathced the movie. I really did expect more.
This movie is colorful, dark, and very orginal. I loved every moment of it.
