This is an auction for THE GOD BOY by Ian Cross. reviews:

"FIVE STARS!!! Jimmy Sullivan is a troubled adolescent relating the events which plunged him into turmoil. He has an existential bravado, swearing that he's going to put God in His place, that he's going to tell the 'truth' to the world about God. The narrator's naivete is masterfully used to create dramatic irony and suspense. It was a punch in my guts as I read his explosion of confusion and violence against everyone he loves in the midst of family disaster. The book and character are wound up dynamite, uneasy, brutal."

"FIVE STARS!!! It mightn't be everyone's cup of tea, but for me, the author got into my mind and wrote down what I think and feel. It tells the story of one boy, and his struggling descent into delinquence due to his father's alchoholism, and the gradual break down of his family. Read it."
