I loved this book. I was always so engaged, and I had a real desire to pick up the book, and see what happened next. I really enjoyed the way this book was written also. The author knows how to write, and it shows. The way this book was written was in a third person omniscient narrator, but it jumped around between who the narrator was focusing on. I know that this isn't really a unique way to write a book (I can name so many off the top of my head without really thinking about it), but I always appreciate when an author utilizes that writing style.
The setting of this book was probably the most interesting part. It was set at a Catholic School, and the stereotype of Catholic schools is that they are very strict with very little behavior problems, but this book turned that stigma on its head. This school was probably one of the most messed up schools I have ever read about. I really appreciated that aspect.
The characters were so vivid, I am so impressed with the author. It was like each character no matter how small or seemingly irrelevant, the reader got a full portrait of who they were as a character. AND EVERYTHING WAS SO IMPORTANT, AND EVERYTHING CAME TOGETHER AT THE END. AND THIS WAS SUCH A GREAT BOOK.
*Just as a forewarning. This is an extremely violent scene, but it was so well done.*
