Began reading to while away the time and to see why my 14-year-old was so infatuated with this book. Soon became smitten with the narrating hero myself and had to see how it ended.
Found it very similar to Salinger's 'The Catcher in the Rye' not only because the narrator is so reminiscent of Holden Caulfield.
Unexpected twist in the final chapter, though, adding depth to what precedes.
A bildungsroman with a peripeteia, then. And cute!
