This is an excellent read that deals with coming of age and the devestating power of guilt. It is haunting and will stay with you long after you finish.

This book will stand the test of time. Beautiful, smart and brave, I had the distinct feeling I was in the presence of great art while reading it. This book should stand alongside classics like A Separate Peace and The Chocolate War. Highly recommended.

I bought this book a while back and finally got time to read it. It began a little slow but once I got more to the meat of the story it grew on me. Plot: This is about a boy, who is in a private all boys school, and a tragic incident has happen. Alex feels let down that he was not on time to save his friend. This plot did move slow in the beginning due to the author giving the reader lots of background information. Once you get more to the middle and more lies and truths began to come out, the story begins to paint a bigger picture of what actually happened. Web Of lies: I didn’t think that guys can lie as well as girls. These guys made lies on top or more lies, they fought and brought other down faster than a quarterback on a Friday night. I mean, really these guys could give mean girls a run for their money. We all knows that lies can only cover for so long and then before you know it, the truth comes out. Ending: I really liked how in the end, all is revealed. The author did a great job leading the reader piece by piece till the very end. This is great book. Not only is it small but it really packs a punch. It’s one of those stories that sticks with the reader even after its finished. I thought about it for days. About the lies and about the truth. Paper Covers Rock is a great read.
