In this fearless portrayal of a boy on the edge, highly acclaimed Printz Honor author A.S. King explores the desperate reality of a former child "star" struggling to break free of his anger.Gerald Faust knows exactly when he started feeling angry: the day his mother invited a reality TV crew into his five-year-old life. Twelve years later, he is still haunted by his rage-filled youth--which the entire world got to watch from every imaginable angle--and his anger issues have resulted in violent outbursts, zero friends, and clueless adults dumping him in the special education room at school. No one cares that Gerald has tried to learn to control himself; they're all just waiting for him to snap. And he's starting to feel dangerously close to doing just that...until he chooses to create possibilities for himself that he never knew he deserved.

In the same few days I was reading this I read the depositions connected to the charges against Marion Zimmer Bradley and Elizabeth Waters and the combination left me gutted.

2.0 Reality Boy by A.S.King
Reality Boy by AS King was the last book I read on 2013. I’d heard a lot of good buzz on this book. After reading this, I have different opinions from those who have praised this story. Honestly for me it’s a 2 star book, a.k.a. it’s OK, nothing more. Reality Boy is the story of Gerald, a boy whos...

He's far from perfect, but it's easy to understand and sympathize with him, and I found myself getting invested pretty quickly. The book itself is engaging, sometimes intense, sometimes funny. It's always honest, often depress...
