My dad once said to me, "You give a lot of books three stars." I do.
I wish I knew a high schooler I could give this book to. The whole time I was (re)reading it I just kept wishing I'd had it when I was 15 because I probably would have really liked it then and I'd have nostalgic feelings about it reading now in my 20s. As it is though, I'm not in high school anymore and I'm not angsty and I don't really relate to these characters or this story. It is kind of cool to see how O'Malley has progressed as a storyteller through Lost at Sea, Scott Pilgrim and Seconds though. Seconds definitely did it for me, and I'd recommend reading it over Lost at Sea.
