    This book made me angry It's the story of a young boy who wants to do the right thing but has terrible role models and no one to turn to He lives in the midst of religious white trash and even the law isn't there for him It's a completely hopeless depressing situation and it's no wonder he wants to take his gun and shoot someone I want to shoot someone just reading it It rambles on in spots and could definitely use some proofreadi
