very quick read.... but that made more sense when I found out it was a young adult book :)

I enjoyed the storyline and would recommend it to teenage readers ( )

Laurie Halse Anderson is one of my favorite young adult authors. I use this book in my Sports Lit class. Even though she is a female, she does a great job capturing the mind of a teenage boy. I enjoy reading it, and most of my students like reading it. This is a great book to use if you are looking for a book that will appeal to teenage boys. It is also a high interest book for struggling readers.

This was okay, but not great with the good guy triumphing over the bullies in the end. Whilst I liked that the narration was from Tyler's point of view, I didn't really connect with the main characters, in fact Bethany was quite annoying most of the time. Also, I felt that the story came to an abrupt (fake) end which was disappointing and left many questions unanswered. ( )

Audiobook: I really liked it, and there's little more to say. Great story! I was a bit annoyed by all of the talk of the protagonist's "trouser snake" and other "boner" references, but then again, I'm a 30-something woman. Who knows if the intended audience is at all bothered by this... :) Deals with the issue of suicide very well! ( )

Moving story about a high school senior coming to terms with his life at that awful age. His life as a self-described hell is well presented to the reader. The book is described as "not for children" and it is not because of a pornographic nature, serious issues are explored. ( )
