While I enjoyed this book I feel like "enjoy" might be the wrong term here. With primary themes of homophobia, religious intolerance, bullying and suicide, this isn't a light read but it's sensitively written with well developed characters.
The storyline is non-linear and takes place over the course of one week in the life of American student Aaron; a teenager who expresses himself through his hair, make up and piercings. Aaron and his family have just moved from a big city to an intolerant smal

This is a powerful story.

A book that should be read in every school. It teaches about bullies and the hurt that can be inflicted if they aren't stopped. It's a shame when people can't be just a little bit different.
Everyone needs to read this to feel what Aaron felt walking into that school, and the sadness Jason felt. Truly a must read...I read it in an hour...could not put it down.

I am a 40 something year old Social Care Worker living in County Kerry, Ireland. I'm interested in reading, writing, politics, sport, film and blogging.

I began writing fiction about five years ago. I've published a number of shorter works, culminating with my first novel, Blue Eyeshadow.
