Sad, sick, powerful story about three runaways and their desperate attempt to flee from the ugliness they've always known. These kids are both awful and sympathetic. Raw emotions ranging from catch-you-off-guard hilarious to heartbreaking. I had trouble putting this fast-paced book down, even though I couldn't decide if I wanted to slap the characters or hold them in my lap, singing sweetly. Not for readers who are bothered by the darker side of life, but a remarkable story for those who are strong enough to read through til the astonishingly hopeful ending.

Runaways, drug addicts, sexual abuse...this is such a sad story, powerfully told. Adam Rapp is one of my favorite authors. This is one of his best.

Before I skated me and Bob Motley made like four films together. The best one was called Girl Eats Boy, where Bob Motley puts this black pillow case over his head and pretends like he's cutting me with the electric saw. Then he grinds up my legs in a hamburger maker and feeds me to this little girl who lives under the kitchen sink. The little girl's name was Wendy Sue. She was like seven or some shit. I think she belonged to one of Bob Motley's boys, but I ain't sure. One night I pulled her shirt up and stared at her body. She didn't even know it cuz she was sleeping.
