really liked it
bookshelves: ya-and-children-s, reread

I picked up this book not realizing that I had already read it...but it was well worth a re-read. (And this from someone who RARELY re-reads a book!) The comparisons to Catcher in the Rye are obvious- James' voice is equally alienated and sarcastic. James feels like a real person, and one I would love to know. Good for those in 9th or 10th grade and up...no explicit sex (there is mention of homosexuality) and no violence, but some cursing; also, the subject matter will likely not interest younger kids.
