Interesting....and weird. I read this along with my son as part of his summer reading. I'm sure a 13-year-old can relate to this book much better than I can right now. A good title for this book could be "The Life And Times Of Paul Fisher", as it really never went anywhere, but the situations Paul ends up in can no doubt be identified with by a young teenager. If anyone is looking for a book for their 6th through 10th grader or so, this is a good read for them.
