Diego is in trouble. At his sentencing for punching another student at school he asks to be given probation. He?s cutting himself, can?t control his rage and in the probation officer who evaluates his case, he has finally found someone he thinks he might be able to talk to and who might actually hear him. This is an emotionally raw story that looks at issues of anger, cutting, sexual abuse, and learning to love yourself again. In addition, the story focuses on forgiveness and healing. Diego?s character is very real and his struggle to articulate the cause of his rage is real and well written. While I felt the ending was somewhat artificial, this book will keep the attention of boys and girls and is a great companion to Eileen Hopkins, Patricia McCormick and Laurie Halse Anderson. Recommended for High School.
