"Rivers writes in a first-person present-tense narrative that is true to a young stoner's wild, muddled viewpoint...Even if teens skim over some passages, the story's central dramas will hold them: a lost kid, angry and loving, who cares for a disabled parent as he tries to block out secrets and lies." —Booklist
"An intriguing read...The reader is left with interesting thoughts to ponder upon—what's real and what's a dream? Highly Recommended." —CM Magazine
"An edgy and surreal teen read...Rivers challenges readers to think
about their own perceptions of reality, to think about the validity and
reliability of memory, and most of all, to ask the question that makes
up the title of this book—what is real?"
