I cannot express in words how amazing this book is! You really feel like you know every character. Anderson makes high school so horrifyingly vivid! A author with good observation skills and the power to dig up old memories is a good author indeed! I know I am not giving you much of a summary but you can read the back of the book for that! This book deserves every bit if its many praises and awards. Very insightful, and it gives you a lot to think about... Anderson is an artist!
