Then he commits an act of vandalism. Suddenly he gets all the attention he ever wanted—just not the good kind.
This is a different type of teenaged protagonist. He suddenly gets bigger and stronger than the other kids around him, including the boy who used to bully him.
He plays video games too much and he has a father who is always on his case and ranks as borderline abusive, even if he never lays a finger on the wife or kids. As such, this character is imminently approachable.
You find yourself nodding along with most of the dialogue and wincing at all-too-familiar scenarios.
At the same time, most readers will vividly recall when high school presented the same onus to when they were younger. Here is an assured voice dealing with the rite of passage so many Americans had to go through, written so much like the voice of a going-onyear-old adolescent that it reads almost like a diary. Teenagers and adults alike will find this book a searing, fresh look at high school written by a very talented author.

It would not be authentic at all to write about teenagers and not use that shock value, to the extreme, because that's what teenagers are like and it's what they want to read, right?

But about the story.
Did I relate to Tyler? Yes, Anderson's characterization is very well done.
Tyler is one of the good guys. I wanted to root for him and I felt for him when things went wrong. She did a great job of switching from light-hearted to heavy.
