High School Fiction

G/M Benoit, Charles. You. Harper Teen, 2010. 240p. 978-0-06-194704-9. 16.99.

In this dark novel, troubled teen Kyle recounts his life changing sophomore year of high school. Kyle is not really a bad kid, but he is having trouble with his grades, girls, bullies and his parents. When transfer student Zack shows up Kyle starts to come out of his shell, but Zack has ulterior motives. There are mature themes and violence, including fighting, drinking, sexual exploits and betrayal, so this is not for the faint of heart. Loren Spector, LAPL, Felipe de Neve.
