This is an amazing story, but wow, you really have to work for it!  It’s brutally realistic, horrifyingly sad, and desperately dark - and I don’t mean just occasionally.  But it’s worth the (emotional) work.  Tyler is someone that I feel I know well, and care for deeply, and get incredibly angry on his behalf.

 

OK, so what happens?  Well, it’s boy (Tyler) vs. world, and frankly, the world is doing a terrifyingly good job of winning, until Connor shows up, and offers the possibility for something better to happen.  There are no easy rides here, no happy coincidences, and way too many moments of screaming at the world/terrible people/ineffectual professionals/the screen.

 

But in the end, it’s totally worth it.  If anything, the final chapter is a little bit schmaltzy for my liking, but fuck it, after everything that has preceded it I’m in now way going to resent it.

 

Definitely read it, have tissues if you’re prone to emotional outbursts/have any kind of human warmth within you, and give yourself a couple of hours because you won’t be wanting toi

A tour de force of self realization and triumph over some really aweful experiences. Not always an easy or comfortable read... but read it you must.
