    " I've read what others have to say about this book, and for that reason, Tenderness is quite difficult to explain. I absolutely wanted to hate the story line because it was creepy and almost perverted. Two teens seeking two different types of needs. Lori just wants to be loved for herself and not her body, while Eric, just released from prison, finds pleasure in planning the deaths of his next victims. You expect to hate Eric because he has murdered three girls, his mother, and his step father. Your thoughts may tell you that Eric deserves whatevers coming to him, but I ended up feeling sympathetic for him. I wanted him and Lori to last. You can tell at then end that Eric has had a change of heart. As odd as it may sound I found myself wanting to give Eric another chance even though he is obviously the bad guy. The end was astonishing. I was left awestruck and saddened to know that Eric will suffer for a crime he never could commit. "

    " It was so bizarre but enjoyable. Would've liked a different outcome for the end but it wasn't bad. "

    " For a teen book, this is incredibly subversive. And awesome! Creepy story of a young runaway who crosses paths with a teenage sociopath recently released from a juvenile facility after serving time for killing his mother and stepfather. The ensuing relationship is totally bizarre, yet incredibly affecting. Cormier is a great author, and I think this may be my favorite of his books for the sheer audacity he had in writing it. Rock on. "
