My review:

This book was collection of journal entries that were made by a high school-er, named Justin. The readers got a very close look into the mind of this teenage boy, and were rewarded for it.

I really liked this book, it was easy to get into and Justin was a kind protagonist. Every action he did was something the reader could relate to, so the whole thing came off as very realistic. Every journal entry looked exactly as it should, with some grammatical errors and many random memories that had happened to Justin and he wrote down.

While the story lacked a plot, it didn't affect the book overall. You learned about many different characters (sometimes hard to keep them all straight) and got to know all of them. I'd love to learn more about Adam, and what is going on with his family.

The story was very interesting, with plot additions that you don't see in your average YA lit. Like the odd-jobs Adam and Justin did for cash, along with Justin's views on high school life. I recommend this to fans of high school, journal-ing type books and POV of boys (which are fairly scarce in this genre!)
