I am not so bad a person once you get to know me.

When Iggy Corso gets kicked out of high school, there's no one for him to tell. His mother has gone off, his father is stoned on the couch, and the phone's been disconnected, so even the social worker can't get through. Leaving his public housing behind, Iggy ventures into the world to make something of his life. It's not easy when you're sixteen, have no skills, and your only friend is mixed up with the dealer who got your mom hooked. But Iggy is . . . Iggy, and he has the kind ofwisdom that lets him see what no one else can.

K. L. Going's third novel is a haunting achievement about a young man's tragic search for meaning in a world that to him makes no sense.

No doubt, my favorite book ever. Incredibly thought provoking, this book causes you to think about all the things that could be different in your life and how you want your outlook on the world to be. This novel shows that every person's view varys from the next, and that no matter what people tell you what the right thing for you to do is, you are the only one who can find the answer, no one can hand it to you.
