" Three boys battle through a poor and violent childhood together with their own brand of love and loyalty. We The Animals is unique and realistic, with a young narrator who is revealed as smart, gay, self-destructive, and crazy. Overall, however, the narrative style didn't really appeal to me. It felt too withdrawn from the insanity of the story, but perhaps that was the author's intent. The narrator stayed on the edges, looking in on his life, in an effort to protect himself from his own childhood, but in the end the effort became too much, and he just snapped. "
