This coming of age book was far different than what I had thought it would turn out to be. Yes, I knew the main character David, was gay and all, but I didn't think it would go into full detail when he and another guy were together.
The story seemed, in a way, depressing. I hated the main character for keeping it a secret, but I knew it would've been hard for him to come right out and say he was gay.
The book gives the reader incite as to how it feels to have a secret that could tear your life apart, or piece it back together, and that is what made it unique. I loved how the book told the story of someone becoming who they were, and it was truthfully versed.
Though, it could have had less detail in some graphic parts, because I became somewhat uncomfortable with the details and such.
Personally, I didn't have a problem with David, and who he was, but I hated all the kids who did harass him and Sean, or Eddie.
The plot was very fast paced at times, but slow at other times as well. It did pick up when you became bored, so that was a plus. The plot itself was unique, and far different than what I had expected as well.
If you are looking for something to read, I suggest you try this out.
