    Catcher in the Rye if all the rich kids got hit in the face with a skate deck and they fell over in the mud with bloody mouths.

    There are things I really liked about this book I felt that Miles talked and sounded like a teenager, not an adult trying to remember how a teenager sounded. I did feel that some of his activities would have been more believable if they were a happening with a teenager a bit older than Miles was, rather than someone between their 8th and 9th grade years, but overall the tone was definitely a teenager. Author Timmy Reed did a great job of conveying that simultaneous bravado, and insecurity that p [...]

    I received a free advance copy from , in exchange for an honest review. So here goes:I didn't hate it. However, there were three things that really turned me off from the book, and they all occur/begin early on, so it sort of tinged and ultimately harmed my reading experience. 1. The kid's nickname is Retard. This book is written and set in the present day and this kind of shit just isn't necessary. Seriously. Do better. Be better.2. The casual racism. Ditto. I get they're supposed to be kids an [...]

    This book sounded really good - upon actually reading it, I can't remember why I thought that.With that original thought in mind, I'm giving it the benefit of the doubt, and saying I just didn't like the way it was written. Which I didn't. Now, I see why the author wrote it that way. I feel it is appropriate from what I know of 14 year old boys. I just didn't like it (or maybe the character himself). It may also seem weird that I'm going to say it was well-written - it may appear it's not, but I [...]

    I guess I didn’t realize the subject matter. Didn’t like it.

    The adolescent narrator is no Holden Caulfield. I didn't enjoy living in his head for 185 pages. Perhaps that was the point

    Angst, skateboarding, and a really big snake. Timmy Reed’s writing takes you right back to that last, hot summer before high school. Mile’s life is full on long days skateboarding, sitting by the pool, watching the Animal Channel, and writing in his school required journal. Miles discovers that sometimes you find life lessons in the oddest of places and through the strangest of friends. Through his rambling yet poignant entries, and with the help of his elderly neighbor, who happens to be pe [...]
