  1. I found this book extremely frustrating. I am usually ok with books, and I’m very oblivious to most things that people pick up on, but this book was extremely preachy. It annoyed me. Yes. It had some cool idea. Yes it had some funny parts. But the preachyness really got to me. And the kid was a stalker! That’s creepy! Like it would of been fine if the kid was a stalker and the book not preachy, but rolled together, it really got to me. Great ideas, not so greatly presented.
