Outstanding read

This is the best book I've read. Amazing story, truly an original story. This is a story that deserves more fan base. I'm constantly blown away by how few people have read this. The audio version also very good. You get an image when reading this that a movie could never do justice to. This book made me start loving to read.

Great book!!

My son had to read for school and I read it afterwards. It was a wonderfully written, easy to follow and understand book. It is one of those books that sticks with you and we all can relate to in some way, shape or form. We know a kid with "issues", we know a kid who thinks he's better than everyone else and we know those parents who will do anything to pretend that their child is perfect until that child finally does something that is out of your hands and the law takes over. Don't walk through life with a blindfold over your eyes. Really enjoyed this book!! Great book for 15+ to read as they can relate as well.
