    There are MUCH better books out there...

    At school we were forced to read this book, and I absolutely dreaded reading it. The plot was simple and predictable. The characters were unreal and hard to relate to. And the violence in the story is unsuitable for children under 13. I did not like this book at all.

    It was worth a try...

    We were forced to read this accumulation of paperbits in our English class. From the first sentence on I was disappointed by Declan's behaviour because of his immature nature. It is understandable that his mother's and sister's deaths made him confused and aiming to take revenge. But this cannot explain either why he isn't able to confide in anyone but reacts aggressively against people who love him, he is not the first one to have lost his parents... Perhaps we didn't appreciate the novel for its protagonist is a know-it-all kid who focuses on HIS problems to make himself interesting and to be noticed and admired for his particularity. Finally, the happy end is farly predictable and sucks so much that even if you liked the rest of the novel, you'll hate the book after it.
