The only good thing about this book is that it's short. Pretty sure I rolled my eyes every other page. ( )

An excellent evocation of adolescence and '80s-era Los Angeles culture. Despite the concision of the prose, the story is surprisingly satisfying and touching. I can imagine it beloved by many a high school reader. ( )

Didn't care for it. Interesting use of language but didn't engage me so I didn't finish it. Life is too short. Next! ( )
