Review: Punkzilla

Punkzilla Punkzilla by Adam Rapp
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

What a great read! A series of letters from (and t0) a 15-year-old boy on the run, living on the streets in Portland after going AWOL from military school across the country from his parents. He boards a Greyhound in order to get to Memphis to visit his older brother who left home four years earlier.

So it's the story of his trip--which isn't far from a National Lampoon Vacation movie--but also the story of his facing adult issues. Big ones. Scary ones. Great book to hand to that kid you know who hasn't showered real recently who clearly has been involved in some non-Father-Knows-Best lifestyle choices.

I love Punkzilla.
