Deep, heavy story

This book is a more mature storyline in terms of space/time . I think it would be hard to understand for younger readers. The story unfolds beautifully after establishing what is taking place by the use of flashbacks. There is a decent amount of swearing, mostly f*** and some sh** maybe a couple of dozen times. This is a great book for anyone who enjoys peeling back the layers to get to the heart of what is happening.

This title has:

Great messages
Great role models
Too much swearing
