⇝My Thoughts⇜

 

Apparently this was once called Boy Nobody, I think that title is a better fit, but then I wouldn't have been able to use if for an I title in a reading challenge.  So…I Am The Weapon works too.  The "I" title is what initially drew me to this, anyway.

This first person pov was a little hard to get into for me.  Despite being realistically well done for being in the head of a teenage boy, it was a bit unusual,  although easily comprehended.   It was definitely unique way of writing.  I think it just left me feeling distanced from the story overall.

⇝Sex Factor⇜ …yes, there is, although not explicit but this kind of threw everything off for me.
