This novel is powerful. The writing is excellent. The presentation is captivating. It was a complete emotional roller coaster from start to finish. I love how creative Matthew Quick was with such a serious topic. He drew me in so fast and held on tight. I think this novel is really going to reach people, especially troubled teens and adults, but I want everyone to read or listen to this novel.
I adore Leonard, and my heart aches for him. He also has the most amazing teacher ever written, and it makes me proud to have been a teacher when I read about someone like that.
The audiobook version is fantastic, and the novel is so good that disc 5 made me sob. I almost had to pull my car over.
