The Lesser Blessed
Wow. This book will definitely give you something to think about after finishing reading it. Billed as a coming of age novel, it's darker with problems that the character faces that are beyond the the typical teenage experience. Although it is fill with smoking, drinking, drugs, lust, and sex it delves into abuse that had spiraled out of control for Larry in the past. To say I enjoyed it would be truthful, although it seems to jump at times, and you had to keep track of what was happening when. My hope after reading this book is the message that the past does not define you, it can not control you, and it is up to you to make your future a good one.
