really liked it

A good exploration of the disconnection felt by suburban teens in the 21st century, and the ways that social media has furthered rather than lessened that distance. It finally takes an Acid-fueled explosion of emotion and sensory overload to connect the Narrator to the world. Even when that happens, the narrator is so alienated even from himself that the reader is never quite sure if sex is or isn 't happening--if the narrator is imagining himself to be the other people in his life or not as the sex is happening (if it is). A very clever book. Recommended.
