really liked it
Read 2 times. Last read September 17, 2015 to October 6, 2015.

I wanted to like this book more than I did. It was, at times, predictable. The main character sounded older and wiser than the majority of sixteen-year-olds I know. The parents were caricatures.
That sound, Konigsberg writes with love. The message is heart-warming.
I recommend this to teens searching for their real selves.
