Read in August, 2011

Decent guy book. It needed a little more detail in the beginning and little more of the main character's delving into his thoughts. He encounters quite a few life-changing events in the space of a couple of weeks, and we don't see quite enough of the effects of those events on him. Nice control of the point of view, though, and a gentle treatment of a kid who's different from the rest of the boys on his street. For a change, the different kid isn't being bullied: he just lives his life as best he can, mostly by himself.
