i saw this book at the store and just the cover made me go "i need this book" i read the first 2 pages and was stunned.i was 13 when i got the book i'm about to be 16 now and i still love this book..i let one of my classmates read it and he too fell in love with the book and made me buy him a copy of it! my mom and uncle love this book too. It's an amazing book seriously. no one can say it's a horrible book if they don't read it.

I can't even explain how much I love this book. If you don't read it, you are missing out. That's all I can say.

This book is soo good. I was just in Barnes N Nobles in the teen section (and I usually don't read teen books, more urban fiction if anything) when I came across this book. I was captivated by the cover because I have never seen a book cover like that before. When I read the cover I was like WOAH, and then I read about 20 pages into the book and I said I have to have it. I finished it by the next day, it's one of those books that you can't put down, and if you do you just pick it back up again. I love the way David Klass writes, it's funny, and silly, and I think that's what made the book so good. I would definitely recommend this to a friend, teen, or anyone that is going through or went through what the main character has been through. Buy it, read it, because it's worth it, and you won't be disappointed.

I don't think the professional reviews were that good. Here is my review(i will try to make it short): John is a 14 year old boy abuised by the man his mother has chosen to love. John's story mainly takes place at his home that is not a home(explains in book) and anti-math(also explains in book) class and music class which is for a extra mandatory activity. He tells about his 'friends', and girls. John directs his story as if telling it to his mother(that will help you when you read it). Be willing to forget what he may have just said as it was only his imagination in some parts. I think you should read this as it is not a fast read but one you should be willing to re-read a paragraph to better understand it.

When I saw this IN MY SCHOOL LIBRARY, I thought... I gotta read this :) It looked absolutely ahhmazing. The writing was so well done, and so descriptive and I really learned who the main character was. I even got my brother into it. I say read this book :)

This book is so interesting and all i had to do was read the first 2 pages of the book and i was hooked because all of it is soooo true. I can relate to alot of the things he says in the book.(btw he is writing to his mom in the story.)this book is great you should really invest in it. This is my personal opinion so dont come back and say that i shouldnt have given this book 5 stars.i liked it ant im sorry if you didnt.

The main charactar deals with his difficult life in such a couragous and humorous way. You find yourself cheering for him and crying for him throughout the story.

This book really relates to me except i play the clarinet not tuba, i'm girl not a boy, and my stepdad dosent hurt me and my brother much any more......... my stepfather is very mean and just because my brother just had surgery dosent me i cant have dome alone time with my self! Ok back to the book.....even thought David Klass is such a great writer this book is very confusing so if you are some one who gets too confused too easily than STAY AWAY!!!!! So this is very touching and you cant help but feel like you have too help John any way you can!!!!!!! When you read you will fall in love with John and feel a deep hatred for the step father!!!! When i say 'fall in love with John' fall in love with his character. Almost every one at Cedar Creek Middle School ( my school ) loves it!!! I reconmend it to ages 10 and up!! - Sarah Booth :);)

I didn't really know what to expect from this book. Many people have told me it was good and it wasn't good...it was AMAZING. It does get a little confusing at times and you may have to read the paragraph again but it is definitely worth it!!!

I read this last year when I was 14. The version I had had a different cover(no face, just writing), and that's what pulled me in. The whole story was captivating; one of those "read in one sitting" books. When I was done, I had a few tears in my eyes and it's really stuck with me. If your a young teen you should definitely read this.

I think this perfectly represents while confusing at times says what it means to say about how lessons are learned and how he might feel and how he makes mistakes and is taught the betters of life in a great and meaningful story of a young boy trying to survive childhood and living a mistake of a life not worth living feeling like he has no friends and no life of meaning until he finds hope where he thought none was.
