Moby and Sarah are characters that will stick with me for a very long time. Crutcher handls every topic a teen could possibly encounter in high school with sensitivity and a considerable amount of thought. What could have been a very heavy-handed story instead makes you re-evaluate your own values and beliefs. I wish more young people would read thoughtful books like this one. I fell in love with Sarah Byrnes and her strength.
