This book is about two boys, one named Victor and one named Bull. Bull and Victor have known each other since kindergarten, but they are not friends. Bull is Victors bully. Bull does not have a good home life, he lives with his Mother and his Grandfather, Pop. His Pop and Mother are both alcoholics and he gets beat up by his Pop. Victor’s family has a lot of money, but that does not mean that he has a good life. Victors parents do not ever seem to be happy with him. Victor decides to end his life so he takes a bottle of sleeping pills. But wakes up in the hospital, with a surprising roommate. Bull finds a gun and when his Pop tries to beat him he pulls in out. Bull pulls the trigger and wakes up in the hospital. Bull’s roommate is Victor.

I really liked how in this book the ending was not that everything had been solved. In most books the book ends with everyone being happy, no matter whatI also liked how we can see both sides of the situation, we get to see both Victor and Bull’s perspective. I would recommend this book to 8th graders and older because it has to do with high school and feeling wanted.
