Sixteen-year-old Shawn must deal with his loss and anger after witnessing his older brother's murder.
Posted November 26, 2000
After an 8th grade student said to me, 'This is a great story, but the language really gets in the way!' I took it upon myself to read on. . . sure enough, the overused profanity really deters from an otherwise good plot that is definitely realistic! Perhaps Ms. Springer will consider these thoughts from a perceptive teen reader when she writes future books about troubled teens. Yes, the language fits the characters, but it appears to be extreme and will keep me from recommending it to my middle school students. What a shame. . .Was this review helpful?
