it was amazing
Recommended for: anyone!

This is one of the best books for young people I've read in a very long time. I love how Tick is proactive, and gets done what he needs to get done. He's not a perfect kid, but he does his best, and that's what makes him so endearing. And another thing, I absolutely adore that he gets along with his dad. So many young adult books portray grown ups, and especially parents as incompetent foolish nincompoops who would sooner grate their fingers off with a cheese grater than help their children through the angsty parts of the stories. Not Tick's Dad! He's helpful, but not overbearing, and when it comes time for Tick to do what he needs to do on his own, his dad's supportive there, too. This is an excellent book!
