I would recommend this book: YES Why or why not?_It was a great coming of age book and any teen should read it(or adult).
Name a favorite scene or character in the book, without giving anything away!_ My favorite scene is when they’re on the road trip and they only get to stop for 5 minutes at a gas station and there running all around it and looking crazy. (you really would just have to read the book)
