Print
For sixteen-year-old Ben Bancroft--a kid with cerebral palsy, no parents, and an overprotective grandmother--the closest thing to happiness is hunkering alone in the back of the Rialto Theatre watching Bride of Frankenstein for the umpteenth time. Of course he waits for the lights to dim before making an entrance, so that his own lurching down the aisle doesn't look like an ad for Monster Week. The last person he wants to run into is drugged-up Colleen Minou, resplendent in ripped tights, neon miniskirt, and an impressive array of tattoos. But when Colleen climbs into the seat beside him and rests a woozy head on his shoulder, Ben has that unmistakable feeling that his life is about to change.

It was okay. Nothing too amazing but nothing horrible. I guess it's just not my kind of book, although, at times it was pretty funny.

The title is as quirky as the story. The book is short and sweet and there is no unnecessary filler. The dialogue feels like you are eavesdropping on a couple talking at the mall or on the go train. You want to turn away so as not to appear rude but it is so interesting (and whacky in a great way!) you can't help but be drawn in.

Colleen's grin fades as she slumps against the nearest wall. Her face goes from technicolour to black-and-white.
"Are you okay?"
"I just threw up. Like, a minute ago."
"You throw up alot."
"I'm practicing for the Olympics."
