I just finished reading this book for school and it was the first book in school that I actually had a good time reading. I related to the main character on a lot of stuff. Did anyone else feel like that when they read this?

No hate, love the book but haven't read it in a quick minute. May I ask what grade you're in?

I concur.  I found the whining and aimlessness of the main character off-putting, to say the least.  And I was pretty angry when he failed to smash that prostitute
