I must say at first I was a bit hesitant to read this book. I thought it would be predictable and what not. Well, I was completly wrong.. This book is not only great full of juicy detail and real life dialogue of how teens talk with one another, but it was also sad and real about events that go on during hazing. It's a very easy read and I believe that you'll enjoy it if you do read. You can't help but to root for Jericho and hope he does the right thing. And after your done with this book, go on to read the sequel...November Blues it gives you the finishing of Jericho and his choices he made as well as the other characters plus new people you will meet in that book as well.
