First of all I'd like to say that this is one of the best books I've ever read. It reads like real life, you get emotionally attached to the characters and it's just so well written. You've probably seen other reviews saying stuff like 'not a Nick Hornby classic'. That's Because it isn't! It's nothing like any of his other books. I'm 15 and nothing makes me more angry than when reading reviews for this book than people saying it's too childish, doesn't fit with my lifestyle or whatever. That is because this book is for Teens! It's about a teen and should be read by Teens! If you're a teen you should read this book immediately and if you're an adult the shame on you. You wouldn't go off and start bad mouthing the very hungry catepillar because it's a bit babyish. It's about a boy (ha ha, like the name of his other book...) who likes skateboarding, and that's all I can reveal without ruining the story but be warned, this isn't an action, horror, crime or fantasy, this is a drama, a proper novel and it's fantastic. Suitable for girls and boys.
