*Strongly Recommended for Ages 16+*I
know this kid. Many of you know the ADD-riddled, crass, BS-ing,
seemingly-insensitive, party-happy, self-absorbed high schooler that is
the Steven Crashinsky. And one of the greatest strengths as an author is
writing Crash as a completely authentic, recognizable character of guys
in high school today AND making the reader care about him. It has a
great hook and a satisfying reveal, and in between there are complex
characters and horrible clueless adults and one truly terrifying
mentally ill kid that brings it all together. At times lighthearted and
funny, and other times raw and all-too-real: this book is a powerhouse.Jill
