This book was definitely a hard one to read. It had so many deep and sad topics that I have not personally experienced. It really opened up my eyes to another’s perspective. Obviously, it is fiction, but I’m sure there are many people in the world with similar experiences to Sal, Sam, Fito, and Vicente. If I did have one thing to criticize, I was not a fan of the language, but I understand how it applies to high school culture and the kind of environment they live in. Overall, I really enjoyed this book! I’m glad I had to the opportunity to read it.
I picked the song “Flags” by Coldplay. It talks about everyone just wanting to be themselves with no stereotypes or judgement.
