Mini-Review (click to view--possible spoilers)

Pro: The story edges toward humor but never loses its horrific edge. The more we learn about why Paul is doing this, the worse we feel. He's a good kid, and he doesn't deserve what's happening to him. And his "friends" are jerks.

Con: The story leaves us wanting to know more about Paul and his mom, how this happened, whether it's contagious, etc.
