I WANT MORE!!!!!

Oh my god I LOVE THIS BOOK, i actually skipped classes to go into the library to finish this book off. GOD ive just finished it and i totally want more. When reading about what Harley is going through, its like u wanna run away with him, be crazy with him, experience the thingz that he is experiencing. I felt so much emotion for these characters. Ihavent been reading long bcos i thought books were boring (as u do wen ur young) but this book will always be my favourite by far, no book will ever take its place. OH GOD PLZ WRITE MORE!!!!! ( dont give this 5 i give it 100000000000!!!!)

A story told with a real voice. You get a genuine sense of the characters' pain and you're compelled to care for the characters as if they were your own brothers, sisters and friends. This book will melt you to tears of laughter and tears of sadness - a great tragedy. Once you pick it up you'll be riddled with guilt if you put it down. ABSOLUTELY AWESOME - Every page is an event, can't wait for O'Dell to do it again.

This is a great book! It is modern, perverted, but incredibly real, and it totally captivates your mind. When you start reading, you just can't stop, and every page has something worth while in it. Most books I have read have a few good chapters and a lot of boring ones, but every single page is good. BEST BOOK I HAVE EVER READ, BUY IT, READ IT, LOVE IT!
