The reviews of this book have been stunning, and I picked it up because I’m writing an angry teenage boy character myself these days. I loved this book for the way it took me into such unfamiliar territory. It is one of those books that I could never have written because it’s not my world, not my people. Yet I came to love both world and people and to want them to survive and even flourish.
Thanks, Chris, for taking me somewhere I’ve never been. That is, after all, why I love to read.
