I devoured this book in about three hours. It was a quick, easy read that brought to light many identity, racial, and grief issues. I honestly think it would be a good book for just about any high school kid to have read. Some of Junior's reactions to things caught me off guard, but it's hard to judge when the life experience and perspective he presents is so vastly different from my own.
It is written like a diary, with drawings and a more personal tone that reminds me a bit of Catcher in the Rye, so some of the big events in Juniors' life were presented not necessarily in a way other books would present them- they were just relayed through Juniors' point of view.
Great book all around.
