When Iggy Corso gets kicked out of high school, there's no one for him to tell. His mother has gone off, his father is stoned on the couch, and because the phone's been disconnected, even the social worker can't get through. So he leaves a note and goes out to make something of his life, but that's not so easy when you're 16, living in public housing, have no skills, and your only friend is a law-school dropout who's thinking about joining the Hare Krishnas. But Iggy is...Iggy, and he's got the kind of wisdom that lets him see things no one else can.

In the week leading up to Christmas, Iggy travels all over the city, finding himself in the lap of luxury, the grayness of a never-ending drug party, the haven of a chapel, and finally at the door to a choice that will change his world forever.

Listener Opinions

    " Having gone through a situation similar to Iggy, the hero of the story, in my past, I found him incredibly relate able. The simple, thought-like diction made it a quick read, but it was nevertheless incredibly impacting. The ending *SEMI-SPOILER* was incredibly heart-wrenching. I fought the urge to cry, and had to re-read it simply to believe what I was reading. "

    " This book was very slow moving. Iggy seemed like an interesting enough character at first, but he did little in the novel except wander around and be melancholy. This reminded me of The Catcher in the Rye certainly, but these two novels are not to be put in the same league. I just wasn't entertained by the story, and I could barely finish it. I'm glad I did read the ending, though, because it wasn't exactly expected. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Samantha | 1/31/2014

    " This book is obviously meant for a male reader. The references of drugs and the girl signifying death throughout the book never really make entire sense until the end of the book. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Duncan Prescott | 1/23/2014

    " The chance at a hand up from Mo's Mother and not taking it was not where I live but the situation he lived in and his desire to find his mother was probably normal. Ending difficult to take. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 bree long | 1/22/2014

    " I love this book it gives you an insight on his life an shows you how bad some people have it "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Timothy Ackerson | 1/17/2014

    " I thought that the book was exiting and fun to read, if your looking for a book, pick this up. "

    " I loved this book. As i was reading it i got depressed because of the way he explains his life. Other than that i loved this book. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 KayLee | 1/1/2014

    " (4.5) The writing never dragged on sentamentily, it was short and to the point which I liked. I also really connected with Iggy,and all the characters were fleshed out. LOVED IT! <3 "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Olivia | 12/27/2013

    " The whole story makes you think one thing is going to happen, but then the plot twists and something else happens. Great book, I couldn't put it down "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Michael Lew | 11/20/2013

    " I ended up liking it more than I first thought I would. The book was pretty good but I wasn't satisfied with the ending and certain parts confused me. Overall I liked it I guess. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Roscell Davis | 11/4/2013

    " This was a really good book. I felt really bad for Iggy. The ending was definately not what I expected. I could really relate to Iggy in a way. It was really cool. :) "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Beckett | 7/22/2013

    " I liked it better than most of K.L.Going's books. The end left me...unsettled. I liked the main character though; he was realistic. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Marlon schroeder | 11/14/2012

    " I think all in all it was a fantastic book. I really liked how it kept you going just when it seems like its about to hit a down point. The only thing I didn't really like was the ending and how it kinda left you in the dark. I think K.L. Going should have put alittle more detail in the end. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Hillary | 9/7/2012

    " I didn't like it. It was way to depressing. Even if there was a really good moral. "

    " This was a well written book, but so depressing that I couldn't really enjoy it. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Danielle | 1/3/2012

    " Good, but no Fat Kid Rules the World. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Ricky | 12/20/2011

    " One of the most heartfelt books I have ever read. They way the author makes you connect with the main character is astonishing and brilliant. Not only that but being with him throughout the book, you see him grow immensely and quick, changing who is. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Chase | 11/6/2011

    " THE BOOK WAS GOOD TO READ IF U HAD NOTHING ELSE TO DO "

    " Iggy gets kicked out of school. He tries to survive on the streets of New York City. Gritty, raw, very interesting to read. "

    " The whole story makes you think one thing is going to happen, but then the plot twists and something else happens. Great book, I couldn't put it down "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Wendi | 1/10/2011

    " Amazing read, but I'm not quite sure I understand the ending. And...who is the gray girl? "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Sam | 9/30/2010

    " This book is obviously meant for a male reader. The references of drugs and the girl signifying death throughout the book never really make entire sense until the end of the book. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Carole | 8/3/2010

    " This book is like a train wreck. I can't quit looking/reading it.
    It was a wild ride right up to the end.
    The end is worth reading all of Iggy's ramblings!
