"It was a very suspenseful book but ended sad but really good"
"This book has a very good understanding of what its like to be in the LGBTQ group as a teen. The Author Greg howard really took a step into Rielys (the main charecter) shoes. They also didnt focus just on the fact he likes boys. That was actually not the main part of the story as it is for most."
