Killing Time In Crystal City by Chris Lynch, 230 pages
Kevin, who has been telling people that his name is Kiki, has run away from his dad and has been living with his uncle in Crystal City. On the bus on the way there, he met a girl who called herself Stacey. Stacey also ends up in Crystal City. However, Kevin meets some guys on the beach in Crystal City who seem like they’re decent guys but they may not be exactly what he thinks. I really liked this story and I really like the way it was written but the ending was a little crazy and I wasn’t left completely satisfied because it felt like there was too much unresolved story. Despite that, I still think this books would appeal to a lot of teens, especially boys.
