This book settled right into my soul It tells the story of eleven different teenagers whose lives drape over each other to various degrees, but what makes the book so captivating is that each teenager s story stands on its own, and contains characters that feel real and whole, facing problems that are all too prevalent in our world It s sad to think that a book about domesti
I surprised myself by how much I enjoyed this book It s not well written, most of the story lines feel unfinished, and the ending isn t satisfying, but I couldn t put it down I would recommend this book to teenagers If you enjoy the
The book was choppy and hard to follow It left me wondering if today s kids are having to deal with as much drugs, sex, and violence as these characters do.

I rate the characters a 5 There are eleven teenagers throughout this book and it would be difficult to keep track of who is who But Frank makes it easy by being very detailed Each character has a distinct voice and personality that makes them stand out He s got poetry, I go, all choky He s got mad poetry Frank In this quote, Ebony is talking about her crush named Eric She is the only person who uses this specific grammer All of the characters are believable They each have a diffe I rate the characters a 5 There are eleven teenagers throughout this book and it would be difficult to keep track of who is who But Frank makes it easy by being very detailed Each character has a distinct voice and personality that makes them stand out He s got poetry, I go, all choky He s got mad poetry Frank In this quote, Ebony is talking about her crush named Eric She is the only person who uses this specific grammer All of the characters are believable They each have a different experience with drug abuse,teen pregnancy,cutting, and foster care They all stay true to themselves For instance, Mickey is forced to buy drugs for his brother but he never does them These characters have a rough life and their experiences makes it easy to relate to I rate the setting a 3 Life is Funny takes place in Brooklyn, New York The setting isn t very important in this story The characters live very close to each other, but it could of taken place in any small town with local restaurants and stores Frank made
