This book gives an interesting perspective of kids who think they have "problems", but aren't able to get the help they need (like I did). There are tons and tons of people just like Thyme out there.
I loved this book-- an instant favorite of mine. It's very educational, and it deals with high school students (mostly Juniors and Seniors). Seeing as typical High Schools can be just as Thyme describes hers, it's age appropriate for High School students. Though the drug additions and cursing could be a concern for some, teenagers deal with these kinds of things on a daily basis, and without really even noticing. I guarantee that this book is nothing a teenager hasn't seen before (I'm a sophomore myself, and I know I've seen it all), and it's completely worth the read.
