I have this annoying problem that gives me a lot of trouble: a conscience.
Neil Bridges attends a Catholic boys’ school in which teachers rule with iron fists and thick leather straps. Some crumble under the pressure but Neil toughs it out, just as his Vietnam-bound older brother has done before him. He has to be a man, after all. But at 16, how can he be sure of himself when he’s not sure of anything else? He loses a friend and finds another, falls in love, and unwittingly treads a path that leads to revenge and possibly murder.

This book did not deal with any of the issues it raised in any depth... death, abusive teachers, first love. A very unsatisfying read.
Confessions of a Liar, Thief and Failed Sex God is a moderately entertaining book. I didn't like the part where the main character falls in love with his friend's older sister. I think this is wierd because it talks about how when she touches his leg slightly he thinks she loves him. Although saying that some of the book is funny but not so funny that you will laugh out loud.
