I am. It's a very quick read I'm almost finished with the book already. It's written as a lower grade level than I expected but very good. I think the character development is excellent you really start to feel like you know what the person is going to do and what they might say.

Cait I also really enjoy Jr.'s sense of humor along with the more difficult emotional events. I just started re-reading this again now, the first time I read it I listened to the audiobook, which is narrated by Sherman Alexie, and I deeply appreciated his humorous delivery. I also agree with the character development - even characters we don't see often, like Jr.'s sister, felt very real to me.
