Library Binding: 336 pages. It probably was a blessing that a class-mate offered a spoiler, letting my son know about a death in the story. My child handled things in stride from that point on. I, on the other-hand, was blown away and became obsessed (sort of!) with what happened. I had to skip ahead, while my son was at school, to see how "bad" the reported death was! I could not wait! I had to know and I vowed that if it was too traumatic, I was done with the book!

I requested a sample of this book and nearly walked away from it after reading the first couple of chapters, unable to connect with the author's writing style or the protagonist in the novel. But in reading the reviews, I stumbled across one written by someone who had the same gut reaction I did. This person almost walked away as well, but stuck it out and wrote a raving review of the novel. So I figured, what the heck, it s/he could do it, so could I. What a blessing to have stumbled across that review! Had I not, I would have missed out on one of the best pieces of Y/A fiction I have ever read.

Once the book was delivered to my Kindle I dove back in, eager to find out if what I'd read was true. And it was so much more than I could have ever expected. Certainly the beginning of the story is a little odd. The writing style, at first, seems a bit clunky and disjointed until you recognize the protagonist, John, is a twisted sort of fellow who's created a safe place, within his mind, in which to dwell. Once that concept is grasped, the story flows effortlessly.

I noticed a few negative reviews which noted repetition. But once you immerse yourself in John's world, this repetition makes perfect sense. It's a reflection of the way in which his mind operates, filling spaces and voids in order to avoid reality. It conjured in my mind instances where I'd repeat pleasant or humorous ideas when the world around me was going a little bonkers. In short, it was a great mechanism with which to explore John's struggles to cope.

David Klass, the author, has created a character the reader can empathize with, can relate to and one you want to seek out and hug. John is an injured soul, trapped in an impossible circumstance. Abused by "the man who is not his father" on a near constant basis and unable to confide in his absentee mother, John internalizes his fear and anger and hatred. John also creates an alternate reality for himself, where tubas are bullfrogs and Mrs. Moonface has a secret plot to undermine the self-esteem of her students.

Every single character in this book is alive and unique and interesting, even the crumby ones. From the strange "friends who are not friends" to Glory Hallelujah to Mr. Steenwilly. They each, in their own special way, add so much dimension and heart to this breathtaking novel, their names and voices are impossible to forget.

I implore you, if this novel rubs you the wrong way from the gate, give it a chance. It's wonderful. So much so that I have now sought out more of David Klass' writings and intend to consume them all. In short, this is a brilliant novel, with a unique twist on an all too common subject.
The first couple of chapters are aggressive and a little confusing ~ but then everything settles in and the brilliant and original storytelling begins through the eyes of a struggling and detached young man who has to fight hard through tough challenges. John's voice, his coping mechanisms and his way of thinking was riveting and unique, and I was hooked and read it all in one sitting.
Every year I pick a book out to give to people for Christmas - and this is the one for this year. I was amazed at what I read and in fact - read it twice over the span of a day - just to let it sink in, to immerse myself in the images created and to figure out where it was going... and how it was getting there. There are so many angles to this story - the voices that he hears in his head - that sometimes escape with consequences no one can imagine. The man who would be his step father - who he believes his mother would choose over him - only to find out later - almost too late - that he didn't know his mom as well as he thought he did and that she just might know him - the real him - after all. The girl who admires him from a far and finally has the courage to ask him out - setting into motion the beginning of the end of the story. The band teacher who can see beyond what is there.. and in the end rescues the boy. And then the boy - who you can see fall apart only to reject ways of falling totally off the edge - to attempt to rescue himself and ultimately doing just that. It's a thought provoking book.. That I can't wait to share with my friends and family.
Compared to all the other reviewers I must be the oddball. I had high hopes for this book, but just had trouble getting into it. I did feel for John with his life and remember those odd times of being a teenager (although I have great parents). I was terribly shy and had one friend; it was easy to relate to some things. However, as I said I just found the book on the boring side for me. This doesn't mean it's a bad book; it's just my kind of book.

Read it and decide for yourself.
This was a GREAT book! I haven't read teen fiction in awhile - shame on me. This book was wonderfully written from the perspective of a hapless young teen who is abused by his step-father. In spite of the serious topic, this book had me laughing out loud.
Good book hard to put down draws you in from the start the pain of a teenager in a home of abuse and how few teachers actually catch on is moving!
It's one of those cringey things a middle schooler would write, but really well done. A wonderful perspective into the world of a reserved boy who's trapped in a life that continually drains him. I'm reading this frequently.
Very good
