Read this book then. It gives a clear view of being an adolescent and you catch yourself saying...'I've felt this way too!' so many times. You can really relate to the author. A great sense of humor in this book too. A sarcastic one. If you like the Catcher in the Rye i promise you that you'll like this one!
