Summary

When we first meet him, Chappie is a punked-out teenager living with his mother and abusive stepfather in an upstate New York trailer park. During this time, he slips into drugs and petty crime. Rejected by his parents, out of school and in trouble with the police, he claims for himself a new identity as a permanent outsider; he gets a crossed-bones tattoo on his arm, and takes the name "Bone."He finds dangerous refuge with a group of biker-thieves, and then hides in the boarded-up summer house of a professor and his wife. He finally settles in an abandoned schoolbus with Rose, a child he rescues from a fast-talking pedophile. There Bone meets I-Man, an exiled Rastafarian, and together they begin a second adventure that takes the reader from Middle America to the ganja-growing mountains of Jamaica. It is an amazing journey of self-discovery through a world of magic, violence, betrayal and redemption.

Very Impressive writing August 16, 2011

This was probably one of the best books that I have ever read. The way it was written was Phenomenal. Once I started to read the textbook, it was often hard to put it down. You can almost feel like you're right there with Chappie going from journey to journey. A lot of people may think that a lot of the things that happened in this textbook were farfetched, but that is what made the textbook so intriguing. I was always curious as to what was going to happen next. I would recommend this textbook for anyone, any age. It was definitely a fun, quick, read. Enjoy!
