Read Twisted

I read Twisted by Laurie Halse Anderson yesterday. It was a FAST read. It's about a senior high school boy, Tyler, who is somewhat of a nerd/loser that is sought after by one of the best looking girls in the class.

There's lots of family drama in this book; dysfunctional family etc. Also, some legal drama in that Tyler, has a bad-boy image his senior year because of his Foul Deed, that is his brush with the law that gets him some mandatory community service time plus a parole officer.

Lots of serious issues are covered in this fast read: police trouble, exploitation of a senior girl, family issues and even suicide.

Laurie Halse Anderson also wrote Speak among other books.
Anderson seems to take on tough subjects that teens face with truth and reality.
