Kind of a neat book. The setting is a school for teenagers who need therapy for a variety of reasons. The main characters are in the same anger management group and form pretty strong friendships. I have never really understood how a group setting in therapy works but this book shows how it can work. The teens hold each other accountable in a way that a therapist could not. Good book!
