dark reflective tense fast-paced

- Diverse cast of characters? No
- Flaws of characters a main focus? No
I hate this kid, and I hate even more that I relate to his anger. I could choke him, but he lives in the back of my head. What an absolutely mean little pest he and I are. And we're both too old for this.
Graphic: Abandonment, Alcoholism, Bullying, Drug abuse, Homophobia, Racial slurs, Suicidal thoughts, Violence, and Cursing
Moderate: Domestic abuse
Honestly, if it weren't for the absolute vulgarity of the language most of these triggers would be bearable. It's 200 pages of intense non-stop cursing. I read it in 2014 and it still haunts me.
