every book has a message of some sort. big deal. this one is fun. classic story, living characters and some high school angst. throw in some vivid pictures of the 80s as seen by one who lived them and survived and some government intervention. i say again, this book is fun.
also, it is the first novel published by my first best friend.
you can get the ebook, a real hold-it-in-your-hand book, or listen to the podcast as read by the author.
my recommendation is on the back of the book and written on my sleeve, where my heart usually is. check it out. =}
