Wow, do you remember your freshman year in high school? Some of the things that happen in this book make it easy to relate to and understand (or remember) what it is like to be a freshman in high school. I guess things really do not change much in high school. Kids everywhere must go through basically the same kinds of stuff. It is a fun book to read. You will enjoy it.
