Reading this book gives you whole different look at things. The way that Luke sees life is much different from most 17-year-old's would see the world as, one example is a spill on a counter. When some teenagers would see it as just a portion of something on a piece of surface, whereas Luke sees it as a molecule. Once it touches the surface it is no longer just a spill, but a life form of some sort. By separating the life form Luke is showing how a molecule can be divide. But, the fact that no one knows that he thinks that way devastates me. This book will keep you wanting more once it is finished. When I came closer to the ending I read very slowly so as to savour the deliciousness of the words, wrapping around me and cuddling me with every strong piece of literature bringing your emotions up and down, but mostly up.

4/5 stars.

Shelf Talker: A dynamite first novel about 17-year-old Luke Prescott meeting his father for the first time. Dad just happens to be a very famous TV star who introduces Luke to the craziness of Hollywood in the most benign way. Luke remains uncorrupted, always observant, appreciative and wise beyond his years.
