Tell us your opinion about the book.
Centered around 3 main characters, this book was an accurate depiction of neighborhoods in the 50's and 60's. It was rather lonely and depressing. While I could not put the book down, I did not find it particularly enthralling.  Montgomery County-Norristown Public Library Card Catalog

Started off interesting but quickly went...no where. I'm not giving anything away but when Bellman starts his "decidedly macabre business" it really isn't that macabre. It's a sound business with a great business plan.
The supernatural hints turn out to be not that supernatural. Disappointing. I felt like change was possible for the main character back to who he used to be but the author just felt like we should be depressed and uninterested at the end so we could call it literature.   Montgomery County-Norristown Public Library Card Catalog

This book deals with the difficult to read topic of "cutting" to self-mutilation, but it is overall a really wonderful book and I enjoyed reading about the relationships. I would definitely recommend this book for teens and adults.  Montgomery County-Norristown Public Library Card Catalog
