Review by: Yvette Levi on May 15, 2011 :
Wow! I couldn't put this book down. I laughed through most of it and then actually teared up at the end. The story of a rich kid making it in Appalachia while bonding with his biological family is bound to entertain young adults everywhere (and a few adults as well, as you can see from this review.)
