"This book was amazing. Great insight into growing up trying to fight the odds of what you've always been told: You're hopeless, a disaster in the making, a lost cause, a blemish to society, all before you've even turned 14. I read in one sitting. Moving on to the sequel. I recommend to anyone who works with kids, teens, troubled souls, or just wants to understand what it's like to be told from day one that you're a lost cause but fight to keep going. Loved it."
