After finishing this book I just continued to lie in my bed (I have a habit of reading really late at night because I can focus better) and ponder for a few minutes about my judgement. This book is written in a journal style. Jonah Black is both the author (that exists) and the fictional character who's writing the journal. I don't know if the character reflects Black himself when he was this age or what, and I really didn't care, but it occurred to me sometimes. This book is pretty hilarious. It's about this Jonah Black who's been away in a boarding school in Pennsylvania for 10th and 11th grade, and comes back to his former school in Florida because he was expelled only to find that he has to repeat 11th grade. That upsets him very much. The reason he was expelled was unknown in this book. He keeps saying he doesn't want to talk about it when asked. And people keep making up stories about it. His mom thinks he needs help, so she makes Jonah see a shrink every week. Jonah keeps seeing/describing this Sophie character. I don't know if she's real or just a figment of his teenage imagination. I think she's a real girl whom he knew in that boarding school, but after that she only exists in his imagination because he hasn't spoken to her ever since. It's like she's stuck in his head, and he misses her so much or something that he creates situations in it, or really sees her like before his eyes, but I'm not sure. Anyway. At first I thought I wouldn't like this book much, having read a lot of books written in this journal/diary style. But I guess I like it. It's funny. I swear I've just been reading 3/4 of the book in bed without moving. I love the names his sister, Honey, calls him. I guess they strike me as hilarious because I've never heard them used in conversations before, as English isn't my native language. Seeing these words (such as phlegmball and scrotumface) used just cracked me pretty badly. However, this book doesn't answer any questions. Is Sophie real? How does he really feel about Posie? Who's Northgirl? Who yells out his name at the end of the book? Will he get to be in senior class? Nope. Unanswered. It sucks that my chance of finding out is zero, because I don't have books 2 and 3 and 4. And they're not available in any bookstores in my country. I got this book from a used bookstore for such a cheap price it's almost a steal. If it wasn't for that I wouldn't have even heard of this book at all. All that being said, I think this book is quite good for its genre. If you want to turn your brain off for a while, this short book of 233 pages is your thing. But don't expect to get anything from it, 'cause in the end it'll probably leave you wondering and wanting more instead, like me right now.
