Totally good book! Had me caught up in it from the start. Even when I couldn't read I couldn't help but think about what was happening in the book. Worrying about characters or about what would happen. It had me on the edge of my seat until the very end. Ending left a bit to be desired but overall the book rocked! :)
I didn't absolutely love it, but as I read it I did get quickly drawn into the story. It's a powerful story about a fairly innocent teen boy who develops an attachment to a girl he meets, and as a result finds himself pulled deeply into an underground world that he doesn't know or understand anything about. Told with a sense of realism and in a gradually darkening style that pulls you in the same way Joe (the main character) gets pulled into a far darker reality than any he has previously faced, you probably won't be able to stop reading it until you're done, if only because you will want to know how it ends.
Not one of my favorites, but definitely worth reading if you're into the genre.
I thoroughly enjoyed this gritty novel. THe ending while not in depth was very satisfactory.
