This is a gritty book. The contrast between kids playing with bottle caps on the side walk one minute and violently beating a peer the next was both hard to read and hard to justify. The teens act like little kids one minute and then they explode in violence.
I was intrigued by the idea of memory as a changeable thing. What would you forget if you had the chance? What would you risk?
And also, would you remember your true self?
