    1. Scarred livesThis work is about a young abused boy/man. It shows how important the formative years of our lives are, how thinking can be so twisted and wrong when we haven't been nurtured. For me, I wonder how many people I have dismissed thinking they were introverts when in truth they were tortured souls.

    2. This book was really very good. No, I didn't stay up all night reading it, but I read it in two days! The characters were well developed and in my opinion believable. Dalton has so many of the characteristics of abused kids. It destroys self esteem, creates loners, makes us think we deserve nothing better and apologize for even being alive.I know parents can only give what they have within themselves, but that doesn't make life easier for a child, or an adult child of dysfunctional parenting.

    3. If you read the description of the book, you know what you're in for; its not a happy book. Though the author seems determined to plunge deep into taboos such as abuse, neglect, and coming of age, he does so with an disappointing style of prose. I understand that it's a YA novel, but it was poorly written or edited, not sure which. It bothered me enough to prevent me from engaging with the main protagonists of the story. Bravo for trying, but if the delivery falls flat, is it worth it?
