Summary
Youth story told through the eyes of a thirteen-year-old boy who has moved to Long Island with his mom from New York City. In addition to being teased about his weight, "Butterball" struggles with this move to a new suburb and school away from his father.
Enjoy?
Yes. The story chronicles many challenges that face today's youth: peer acceptance, conflict resolution, parental relations, school motivation, etc. Based somewhat on 50 Cent's own adolescence.
Suggest?
Yes. Although published with 314 pages this is a very quick paced story. I think fans of young adult themes will find this book particularly interesting/entertaining.
