At first, when you start reading this, you think James is a little insane, of course, he may be, but he has problems and is very relatable. 10/10. A very honest book, and every teen should read this.

I loved this. It deals with some heavy issues -- depression, domestic abuse, cutting -- but it's also funny. The narrator's voice is authentic, honest and trust-worthy.
