I personally love this book because it entails so much detail in each page . every page you can feel the emotion in every character . it makes you want to read more page after page due to the amazing wording and the enticing plot. the plot of the story entails josh's reactions and flashbacks to when every thing occurred and how she manipulated him. the way barry lyga shows all of the characters intentions a while still showing josh's reactions and mind set. this book is also very helpful to teens because this situation happens all the time to teens in America and it shows you how holding in your emotions won't help and why you need to talk about your experience.
