    1. This is a "deal with the devil" type of story, where a kid who is severely bullied because he's a scrawny dullard has his life transformed . . . at a cost. The most powerful parts of this story are the insights into the main character's life and truly feeling how beaten down and desperate he is. It's really frighting to see a young person in this condition and to know it happens all too often these days. And then to see him transformed as the story takes off, and his luck turns gave the story a [...]

    2. “There is nothing clearer than the power of the written word.” (5)As Michael writes in his diary, he recalls his botched suicide attempt. Or was it a dream? But it felt way too real to be a dream. Was he hallucinating? Did he have some kind of sixth sense? What was going on?The story grabs the reader from the start. You can’t help but relate to these down-on-the-luck characters as they struggle to survive. Michael is this high-school loser that’s never had a girl and has always been bull [...]

    3. This is, I guess, a horror storyybe a psychological thriller? Not really either but maybe I'm too used to HORROR horror to consider this as such. It's basically a "be careful what you wish for" story. If not for the blurb (and telling, about 6 chapters in) I'd never have known the main character was 17. He sounded like a pre-teen like 11? Also the setting I couldn't have told you that til over halfway thru the book and by reading reviews. Then there was the lottery in the bar where the guy says [...]

    4. I loved this book!! Perhaps one of the best deal with the devil stories I've ever read. Granted this type of story has been around a very very long time but its a fresh take on the tale with some great twists and the ending in particular is really excellent, really floored me. Finished it in a day! Recommend it to those who love a suspenseful and creepy read. A great debut novel
