This book provided great insight into a young mind who was raised in an active Latter-day Saint home and taught right from wrong, but chose a different path. He soon found his fantasies took him into deeper trouble than he realized, with friends who turned on him to save themselves. His situation went from bad to worse as he entered the juvenile rehabilitation system. Mike found opportunities for his better side to come out to help others. At the same time he battled within himself regarding whether he wanted to change, or if he really could change. This was a story about family who did not lose their faith, and did not give up on a wayward child.
Told in the first person, the dialect was a little difficult to get used to at first. However, even more than for Mike’s character, but for the others he interacted with while going through this experience, the dialect added to the setting and made the characters real. The pacing of the story was good. The story held my interest. It was a story of hope. I definitely can recommend it.
