Our opinion about Going Bovine

While my group is reading Going Bovine, we feel like this book is weird. what's weird about it, is that there is a 16 year old teenager diagnose with Creutzfeldt-Jakob Syndrome (Mad cow disease). My group and I assume Cameron the main character hates life and doesn't like being around with his family.
