Interesting story, easily finished in one night. I thought the author did a good job of relating the atmosphere and language of high school students while telling a wider story. I disagree with one reviewer who said the ending was disappointing- I think it was very thoughtful and well done. Not tidy, but real.

Great for a high school student! Even better for a student interested in photography. Deals with family life, adult drug abuse, and friendship.

Fast paced, a good quick read. Humorous in parts and a commendable effort in story line. Well written , however the ending does leave the reader , without really giving the book away, disappointed.
