Review: All American Addict by Jason Cunningham

All American Addict is the story of a boy named William Plum. He's a bright, sometimes insufferable, sarcastic, and socially awkward young man who has everything going for him. Even though his home life is less than ideal, he's future looks promising and bright. However, this is a story of how all of our lives are very much out of our control. After being caught in the wrong place at the wrong time, William must leave his life and future plans behind and reconstruct his life one piece at a time.

I think Jason Cunningham penned a beautiful story. The characters in this book had depth and developed in such an incredible way. At one point, Cunningham refers to an essay William is working on as "candid, raw and naked." I think this describes All American Addict perfectly. It tells the stories of all of the people close to William in such a realistic way. I felt every emotions ever known to man while reading this. I cried, laughed, name it, I felt it. It gripped me from page one and, even though I finished it days ago, I still think about the story from time to time. This book is my first taste of Cunningham's work. I am very much looking forward to getting my hands on this other titles.

Note: I received this book for free through Goodreads First Reads.
