Landscaper Mike Muñoz just can’t catch a break in this laugh-out-loud funny novel with sneaky depth. Suggested by Marie B.

This book seems light, but it also is dealing with several important issues. It's both a fun coming-of-age story and a springboard into discussions about very real social issues.

I agree with the other two reviewers. The book is very funny with a strong serious undertone about the life and changes of an individual.
Most enjoyable.

I found this book in the audio version. I think this is an important read and it needs as much exposure as possible. The development of the main character, Mike Munoz was so powerful, sensitive, inciteful, believable, relatable, I actually looked at the authors name again...thinking, this has got to be a autobiography. I have thought about this book over and over since I finished it a few weeks ago. Best Read for me in a long time. Please share this book with others. It really makes you think.

"Lawn Boy" is both funny and serious. It's also smart and refreshingly different; the main characters' struggles and challenges are down-to-earth and true-to-life. Recommended.
