Yeah, they kept telling us our high school years would be the best of our life, but they lied. Fifty years later, as this novel relates, they're still lying. In this book, being on the football team doesn’t help, not when you have your own demons in addition to your derogatory dad. I have questions about some of the assumptions in the timeline – if it's football season, I don't see how Eddie has time for much else than games and practice. Still, the story delves into details of the dark, often violent, reality many teens face.
