I am definitely enjoying this book, it’s easy to both pick up and put down. Not too tough to get through and deals with some issues that some “artsy” teenage boys would love to read about. I think it’s really great how it’s about a boy who likes being alone, and everyone makes him feel like this is such a problem. It is in some respects, but they take it to extremes, and don’t treat him the way that would be best for him.

It’s a great showing of how parents misread, and misunderstand the needs of their children, and the pressures that are put on kids are sometimes the opposite of what the kid actually wants for their life.

As for on a writing level, I thought it could drag and be a bit boring, but loved how up-to-date it is and what issues and audience it addresses.
