this book is great. its main strength has been being really open minded to the readers and telling the whole truth. the book has no weaknesses so far. its been really good. i fell the issues have been great. he's taken us through his life upto his freshman year in highschool and the issues have been absolutely nothing but funny. this book describes every young mans life. it describes embarrassing moments, funny moment, and frustrating moments. i cant really make any predictions. the book is too random and almost impossible to predict what will happen next. i feel the book is great and will be good throughout the whole book!
