I only give the book four stars because towards the end of the book, the story takes a very bizarre turn. The main character, Scott, who confesses earlier in the book to not really believe in God, has what could be describe as a "conversation" with a higher power. Is it a hallucination, aliens or God? It wasn't necessarily the questioning of God's existents that turned me off, but I found this section rambling and just plain odd.
Some parents might find this "conversation" and Scott's lack of faith objectionable. Also, Scott and his friend look at his Dad's "Playboy Magazines" (with minor comments about such) and make typical 13 yr old boy comments about girls, etc. I would personally not let a child younger then 12 read this book and you still might find yourself explaining a few things.
All in all, a good book. I will wait a year or so for my son to read it though. He'll enjoy the book more when he is in that 13 yr old boy just starting to really like girls and becoming independent state of mind.
