Challenging ideas of comfort

Having not read "sci-fi" since I was a young teen, I was blown away by this novel for many reasons. It's fast paced, and thus likely to keep the attention of the video game generation, the protagonist is not only "street smart" but has deep moral values, and he is able to build the possibility of a better life for himself by understanding that family, friendship and loyalty are choices and not givens. This book is iconoclastic, in the broad sense and I loved it for that.
