    " I felt comfortable in this kid's head. Great book. More with quotes soon. "

    " This just wasn't my kind of book. I think other people could enjoy it a lot more than I did. I don't get the title even after reading the book, but at least I love the cover. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Zoe | 1/26/2011

    " I give 5 stars to any book that makes me laugh out loud - not that this is strictly a comedy, but the writing is sharp and witty without being overly clever. +10 points for Andrea's "Now I'm slimy." "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Sarah | 1/1/2011

    " Love. It's the kind of book I want to write, wish I'd written. "

    " Hmmm..I really liked the tone in this book. I enjoyed the humor and Jacob's views on things. I also liked how descriptive Rathbone is of the juvenile center. However, there were many points where I almost fell asleep. I didn't really get into it and felt that mostly it was lacking in plot. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Elysabeth | 11/25/2010

    " Strong start but feels incomplete, somehow. Frustrating in it's lack of overall focus but well-written, so it must be forgiven, I guess. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 mim | 11/18/2010

    " I bought this because it was a local author and at my nearby Indie book store, a staff pick. I enjoyed it. The author did a good job with a teens voice, I thought. I was a quick read. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Liz | 10/10/2010

    " If I'm reincarnated as a person I'm going to read it when I'm 18 "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Greta | 8/19/2010

    " Really liked the main character -- funny as hell. The writing was lovely, though the story was a bit predictable (although I will say that I never felt bored).
