This book was strange. Took a while for me to get "into" it, but it's actually pretty good in it's own way. It has many sad parts when you think of it as a whole. (The rich kids who never have everything except the parents around, the drugs taking over, etc.) As I got closer to the ending I couldn't put it down. And the author was born in 1984!! Pretty good for a very young guy....he says it's all pretty true too.
It's worth a read if you are looking for something different.
