  1. While many books are dumbed down for teenagers this one is not. It gives you the face value of what I believe a teenage boy would be thinking/doing/saying if he was in this type of situation. I really enjoyed how it comes flat out and tells you what happened, but it doesn’t tell you how it’s going to end. I really enjoyed this book.
