This is a really great book with an engaging story line - that was also fast-paced and easy to follow. I could relate to many of the things in this story. I liked how the main character had a difficult past - but he was always trying to get through it. It also showed that he wasn't always having the best days - and sometimes what he did made it better, and - other times - made it worse. I enjoyed this book very much - and would recommend it to others! Other great books by Lisa Graff include: Absolutely Almost, Umbrella Summer, and A Clatter of Jars.
