parts of this book were nicely written, and then parts read very awkwardly. what i think is the main point of the book (to find/follow your truth and live your life by that truth even if others don't understand it) wasn't really clear until the last few pages. there was so much in this book that turned out to be random extraneous things that happened that didn't add anything to the plot or the message, unless i missed something. a quote my therapist would appreciate that i noticed:"'You are so sure it was a bad idea, Max? Can you see all the way to the end of that idea that you can say with such certainty it was bad?'"
