If I had to describe this book in one word that would be it. Bitersweet.
It was such a beautiful book, but at the same time, very sad. Though I think those two kinda go hand in hand. Can’t have on without the other.
You start the book with Johnny as a kid, you see through his innocent eyes his circumstances and his current superhero: his dad. I felt sorry for him a few times, but also sympathized so much with him.
You advance into his teen years and with the dead of his father, you also enter this miserable world he seems to be living in, which IS sad but, I was laughing so hard at some parts and I could see things different, like they could actually get better for Johnny.
As for the ending. . . Wow, I had never been so surprised with an ending I think. Just W.O.W. it was shocking and sad at the same time, but when the last chapter ended, I had this little smile on my face – I still have it actually – it was. . . right. The right ending. One word: Beautiful.
I Loved it. Can’t even describe it right, I just loved it. I sure as hell am re-reading this and recommending it to Every Single Person I Know.
Special thanks to John Philip for the book, it’s worth gold.
