This Boy is about a teenager going through high school and dealing with addiction, "the right gang", love, and friendship. I felt this book was a bewildering way of showing an amazing friendship from start to finish. This book was definitely a story that made me cry with the sadness of loss. (It was more painful for me than the character). It was so touching to see the love of a mother in progress. While the main protagonist dealt with his drug addiction, his mother went to risky heights to help him. This story was definitely one of the best books I've read this year from the view of a high school boy who goes through the worst of the worst. It was also an amazing love story. A girl who has to choose from one friend to another.
I would definitely suggest this to anyone; it's just an amazing story.
This author, Lauren Myracle, is definitely one I will follow for other books like “The Infinite Between Us” or “Shine”.
