Chris Crutcher's books are definitely NOT light-hearted. But his writing is good, his stories are compelling, and his characters talk about things that parent's don't -- or won't. Considering the rather large numbers of people I've met who were abused as children, I'm glad to find out that someone IS talking about these difficult issues.

This (like all Crutcher's books for "young adults") is NOT a book for teens or anyone who likes good literature. The subjects treated on this book are for mature audiences, not 16 year-olds who are still developing emotionally. The ALA, librarians and teachers are pushing low quality literature and pornography to children--right under their parents' noses--instead of the Classics. Shame on teachers and librarians.
