This book was assigned to me in school ( 7th grade English, I remember)!
Going in, I didn’t know what to think of this story but overall I really did enjoy this book. It’s definitely not a happy-go-lucky-story with a happy ending, but wow the middle to the ending is really what made the story so intriguing. I like how the characters are young, and there’s no authority around and I like the savageness of each of the characters, each of them possessing their own valuable strengths and vulnerabilities. It is one of the few books assigned in school that I really did enjoy and like, even though it was kind of a mind boggling story.
There’s also a movie, if you want to check that out 🙂
