Unfortunatley I new pretty quickly that I didn't like the book and that I woldn't recommend it for MSBA. Some swearing at the beginning turned me off. It is also very British which is hard for my students to read. Then it got pretty violent. It reminded me of the book Trash (which I liked better). With the gangs hunted him down and then the dog fighting scene in particular. I also really did not like the ending because the main guy who was after him the whole time was never caught. Sorry...nope.
