When I indulge myself in Young Adult fiction, THIS is what I am looking for. Sweet, kind misfit children who struggle with growing up and becoming their own person (kind of like where I have been consistently stuck emotional-development wise since 1999 when I first read The Perks of Being a Wallflower ). I like to read about children who get bullied and children dealing with feelings they’ve never felt before. A first relationship; a first loss. I don’t really have enough good things to say about this book and I have a feeling I would really like The Bubblegum Reaper as well if ever given such a magnificent opportunity.
