it was amazing

Wow, just finished the ARC (Thanks, Candlewick!) last night around 1 am. This is a page-turner for sure. Not sure it's really YA material, but what a ride. I guess I should say, what a trip since that's what the main character Lucas spends a lot of time doing. The author says it's mostly autobiographical and it does indeed feel that way. I have to admit that one thing that kept me going was not being able to guess where the story was headed. But I guess that's the point. That summer the author didn't now where he was headed either. I wasn't alive then, but even if I was, this is a world I don't think I would have ventured into. A real eye opener as to what young people were up to back then.
