I had no idea what to expect when I purchased this book - from its cover, I thought it may be some sort of GaimanGorey-type of fantasy novel. This phenomenal tale of a middle-school aged boy and his family was one of the best fictional works I've read this year. Family dynamics, family secrets, sportscompetition (in particular, the middle-schoolhigh schoolcollegepro sports trackrat racemoney chase), social class disparities, pressures on middle-class families, economic disparities, the environment, school pecking order, physical and mental health disabilities, etc. All the while creating a fascinating look at a slice of American life. I don't know if this book is supposed to be in the young adult-pre-teen high school category, but I know that this 55 year-old card-carrying AARP member thoroughly enjoyed it.
At first, this book at first seem like one of those boring books i was forced to read all the time. And that was the impression i had on this book for a little bit, but i read it a lot more and it became a great book! For anyone who wants to read this book, dont throw it away the first paragraph. The boring stuff at the start is so good later on in the book, he said.
   Great read for preteens and teens
I downloaded this on kindle because my 7th graders were reading it and speaking so well of it. Loved it, and I read it in one sitting. I can see how it can be used in earth science classes. The language arts teacher didn't enjoy it as much as her friend that teaches reading, but another friend that teaches reading loved it as well.
   I read it and enjoyed it. It gave us a lot to talk ...
My daughter just finished her sixth grade reading class and she was thrilled with the book. I read it and enjoyed it. It gave us a lot to talk about - nature, parents and interactions between other middle schoolers.
   Q feo serviso
Con el orticulpno, ni fotografa pusieron de la entrega para bus, el libro es muy importante mijo.
It is a good book and that is coming from someone who doesn't like to read first person books, Hachette said. The story was told in an amazing way.
Came in 1 day and was in perfect condition it's new and shiny nothing on the book came in 1010 condition. I needed this book for class and it came exactly when I needed it.
   Violent bullies
One star for perfect condition of the book. It's just that terrible book that my 6th grader had to read. There is abuse by an older brother, neglectful parents, stealing and murdering with no real consequences, the child is blind because his own brother holds his open eyes and sprays paint into them!! In the real world this would be assault and the violent child could be removed from the home. My kid had to read this terrible book. This is the kind of thing that makes kids hate to read, Raymond said. The positive reviews outnumber the negative by a 4-to-3 ratio. Did you even read this? What do you think?
   Make sure this is age appropriate for your kids
My 9 year old was assigned this book at a Christian school and it had swearing and kids beat another kid to death with a bat, I think it was around 200 pages. The parent reviews are a little troubling for kids of any age. The kids in her class didn't like it. IT seemed criminal in nature not things kids are going to experience in middle school, Blair said. Really strange book for tweens. A couple of us said it might not be a healthy choice for kids who are young or struggle with depression or family issues. Our kids don't but it isn't a book I would let a child read without a parent's help. Yikes! Probably more appropriate for high school students. It isn't the it is a bad book, I just question the recommended ages on it more than any other book we have been exposed to. In our opinion, it's just too late for many seniors to make age recommendations based on experiences. For others it may be fine just read the reviews or read the book before blindly giving it to your kid.
   Interesting storyline
I first read this book when I was getting my teaching license and helping with classes in a middle school. The story was incredibly interesting and the student responses after they finished reading the book were very insightful, Ms. Caramore said. After ten years, I remembered how much I enjoyed this book and wanted to read it again.
