You try not to think. You try not to imagine, but then those cracks pop up, and these flashes squeeze right through. At first, some of it's not too bad, and you get stupid, maybe even wanting a little more, but then you pull yourself together, knowing what all is likely going to ooze out if you're not careful.... andlt;BRandgt;andlt;BRandgt; Fifteen-year-old America has been nowhere, has been nobody. Separated from his foster mother. A runaway. A patient. Without love. Without hope. And, eventually, without the will to live. andlt;BRandgt; Until Dr. B. steps in. To listen. To explore. And to find within America both the story and the boy who are lost.

This book is off the chain!!! It tells the story about a young boy's life that I can really relate to. This book explains the things to me in my life which I really find hard to talk about and I think every teenager should read it. It really made me feel like I am not the only one in life who has had problems like that, even it it is a fictional book it is still comforting.
