Very engaging "troubled teen" story. Some of the scene transitions are a bit choppy, but the story is compelling and the book is hard to put down. The work may need a bit of polishing in spots, but the author is on the right track. Don't read it if you aren't prepared for teen angst.
Eddie has some tall tales, but that's what happens when you grow up in Texas. Personally, I believe in the flying pigs, but I'm not so sure about the bear. A lot of fun, and in between the shady stories, there's some good inside knowledge about Depression era Texas. Give 'er a read.
