My rating: 4 of 5 stars
This was a remarkable coming of age book.
Asher is only 14 years old and he already is experiencing life in a rough dysfunctional way, his family are not the best, his parents aren't the best role models either and he's also struggling coming to terms with his sexuality.
I am going to warn you that it speaks of rape in this novel but its vital to the storyline and not just 'plonked in there' to make it dark, it really is vital to the book.
Elizabeth Wheeler has done a remarkable job in making this stand out as oh so real.
Asher lives his life through his camera lens. Its his coping mechanism I felt.
If you look at the book cover you can see his dispair.
If you you are looking for a book that gives you a rollercoaster of an emotional ride, look no further.
