    **I received a Kindle edition of this book as a Goodreads giveaways** I didn't like this book at all. It felt like an excuse to write a raunchy, trashy story about a horny teenager. Most of the "action" (pardon the pun) in this book was in trying to get action with girls. The dialogue was hollow. The language was foul and crude. The main character, Danny, makes some attempt to figure out his position in the world with the Vietnam war looming over his future. But mostly, the story is all over the **I received a Kindle edition of this book as a Goodreads giveaways** I didn't like this book at all.

The language was foul and crude. The main character, Danny, makes some attempt to figure out his position in the world with the Vietnam war looming over his future. But mostly, the story is all over the place. If the characters aren't talking about getting drunk, they are talking about sex. If they aren't talking about sex, they are talking about getting drunk and eventually high. The relationship between Danny and his brother, Al, didn't make sense. When Al is first introduced, there seems to be no love for his younger brother. Then half way through, all of a sudden they like each other. When Al leaves for an internship, Danny suddenly misses his bully brother terribly. I know, relationships are complicated; however, Al wasn't nice and it was an abrupt change. My biggest complaint about this novel was the poor grammar and spelling. I don't know if it is the translation to a Kindle edition or what, but spacing is totally off. Commas and quotation marks were used incorrectly countless times (I highlighted mistakes). Throughout the book, it was hard to tell where the dialog ended since the quotation marks wouldn't be in the correct place. Don't rely on spell check! I wouldn't recommend this book to anyone.

    I received a copy of this e-book for free through a Goodreads First Reads Giveaway. A decent, quick read about a teenager growing into adulthood with the looming possibility of being sent to fight in the Vietnam war. It's pretty clear there's a parallel between the main character, Danny, and the author's own experiences, as both grow up in St. Paul, Minnesota, both play hockey for the University of Minnesota, and both served in the US Army. The book does need an editor though. There are many form I received a copy of this e-book for free through a Goodreads First Reads Giveaway.

The book does need an editor though. There are many formatting issues which I assume happened when the book was encoded into the format for Kindle. It's distracting. There are also some typos and inconsistencies. For example, at one point Danny is driving to Minneapolis from St. Paul at 7am and driving into the sun. To go from St. Paul to Minneapolis, he'd be driving west...and the sun rises in the east. The book is *not* for young adults as it does contain some graphic language and sexual situations.
