Favorite Quote:
My life has been the poem I would have writ, but I could not both live and utter it. -Henry David Thoreau


I’m Riley Adams. Boring, unnoticed, socially troubled, one hundred percent male Riley Adams. When some people look at me, they say that I’ve been through it all. Psh. I wish. What I’ve been through doesn’t nearly add up to it all, for I know that my father’s death, my mother’s disappearance, my sister’s absence, and the disgusting pills that I take every morning do not count as “it all.” But one day, I hope that I do go through it all, whatever that may mean. And maybe with this new girl named Hailey, a non-serial killer apartment owner, a small supply closet, and a little bit of Survivor, I’ll be able to go through most of it all, and maybe even survive my senior year of high school.

I loved the fact that a female wrote in the perspective of a male character! Very unique among teenagers these days. Loved the story!

Wow! After reading this book, I could not believe that a teenager wrote it! It is very mature and creative, definitely one of my favorites on teenink. Keep writing and I hope to hear more work from you!

Nice work!!! This really depicts the lives of some people in the this world. Also, I can see some inspiration from John Green. Once again, keep up the work as its outstanding. Deserves 5/5 stars.
