Could not stop listening. It should be required listening for all. I was so invested in the story. Hopefully this is the first book. It becomes more and more important as the time goes by. It left me feeling physically ill. Few listens is this amazingly important and shockingly scary at once.

Would you try another book from Laleh Khadivi and/or Assaf Cohen?
I get this is the way some teens live and speak and frolic, but it is so obsessive at the beginning of the book, I can't imagine reading another novel from this author.
What could Laleh Khadivi have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?
Use illusions instead of all the foul language, sexual descriptions, drug use and gang warfare, was just too much...rather than the story leading the story, these elements overwhelmed the story. I heard about the story in an interview on PBS, after listening to the first 45 minutes I returned it for a refund.
What about Assaf Cohen’s performance did you like?
Voices and cadence and characters were excellent, you could really "see" their personalities. Excellent vocal performance.
What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?
I was just sad...sad that this was how teens treat each other, and use each other in the haze of drug use and rebellion.
Any additional comments?
