    " I thought this book was one of the best I've ever read. It starts out with a boy Nathan admitting to killing a cop however he swore it was in self self defense hahahahahahahahaha. It leads on crime spree though he seem like a normal kid. Read the rest. "

    " I thought Nathan's Run was a really good, and sad story. What he went through, and at his age, was just so song. He stayed strong though! "
