Funny, witty and honest! Loved the book!!
If you need something that'll make you think a little about life or about a side of society you only hear about on the news, this is the book for you! You'll find yourself driving around just to listen to one more chapter. The characters seem to come to life and you'll wish you knew what "they grew up to be" or where to write them a letter. Some of the language used is not suitable for children, other than that the book is FANTASTIC!

Starts slow, ends too soon
Initially, I was unimpressed with the reader of the book. At one point I almost decided to skip listening and move on to another title. I am VERY glad I stuck with it and got past the first hour. I became totally engrossed and actually got somewhat emotional at times. Feeling both good and sad at the events that take place it made me see that I need to appreciate my place in life a bit more.
