Since there are over 1,000 reviews on Goodreads, I’m not sure what I can I say that hasn't already been said except this is probably one of the best books, if not the best, that I'll read all year. Henry Jerome Denton takes us through all of the traumas and trials that a teenager could face from bullying and sexual assault, the inexplicable suicide of his boyfriend, a broken home and unresolved issues with his absent father, a jerk of a brother who vacillates between sometimes bully and sometimes protector, the death of his unborn niece, a grandmother grappling with Alzheimer's, and a mother with serious self-esteem issues. Is it any wonder that he can't come up with a single good reason to press a button and save the world from annihilation? Henry envisions all sorts of doomsday scenarios which could bring about the end of the world. But is it the end of the world that he is trying to prevent or just the end of his world?
Wonderfully written with an amazing array of characters, this is an unforgettable story that takes the reader from the depths of despair to a place of healing and new-found hope. #OMG
