Iggy Corso has one of the hardest lives a teenager can have. It seems like everything he does or tries, comes out wrong. But who can blame him? When his dad is constantly drunk, and his mom runs off for weeks, supposedly visiting. Though he knows better. She goes off to do drugs, and he wishes she wouldnít. He gets kicked out of high school, so now what is he supposed to do? Where does he go?

This book is one to fall for! I love the way the words roll across the page. They are smooth, and sweet. The story line is great and I never wanted it to end. Once it did, I could hardly wait to express how much I liked it. The book states just how much is going through a teenagerís head, as well as what is happening to kids that are deprived of a loving parentís arms. The characters in the novel are so real to the reader that you can imagine exactly what they look like, or exactly what they sound like. It is a twisted reality; filled with violence, confusion and happiness.

I would recommend this book for teenagers thirteen years old and up. It is a good book for people who may be reluctant about reading. It will catch your attention, and keep it right through to the last page.

Five out of five stars for this book! This novel is amazing Ö spectacular. You will want to read it again and again.
