Summary Boo Author Neil SmithBoo Author Neil Smith

Review õ Boo Author Neil Smith 102 Johnny a classmate killed at the same school Boo sets out to track down the mysterious Gunboy who cut short both their livesIn a heartrending story written to his beloved parents the odd but endearing Boo relates his astonishing heavenly adventures as he tests the limits of friendship learns about forgiveness and finally makes peace with the boy he once was and the boy he can now be Oh My God I would write something witty or nice here but my brain can only form three words in a loop Oh my god Ohmygod ohmygod ohmygod This book Suffice to say this book blew my mind It was fantastic in the way that I hope all books could be but rarely manage to even reach the threshold This book was greatness that I could hold in my hands and I am not even exaggerating I beg each and every one of you to read itThe CoverThis cover shows Oliver AKA Boo shut inside of his school locker The number of his locker is 106 which happens to be exact number of elements in the Periodic Table which Boo has of course memorized This is super symbolic and everything but since I don t want to give out spoilers You ll understand though and if not comment and I ll explainMy ReviewThis book was just so fantastic It was exciting and funny and beautiful Picture combining some of the best characters you ve ever read about with the writing style of a muse and then mixing in a plot with the surprises and greatness of your favorite book I think that describes Boo I have little doubt that this book will be a huge hit If it doesn t something is seriously wrongAnyway the characters of this book were really complex and complicated with a human level of messed up ness They messed everything up with the purest of intentions They were kind and mean for their own reasons They were the people you ve met and will meet You see only the one side of them until the truth is revealed They were beautifully crafted people who gave this story its wings pun intended It usually takes multiple books for me to feel as connected with characters as deeply as I managed to do in this book s 310 pages Boo has three stages of reading 1 This is really neat and cool A uirky spin on heaven I think I ll like this book 2 Wait WHAT 3 Stab me in the heart it ll hurt less Each of these stages was amazing I loved each of these even than the last It was simply perfect The plot had so many twists and turns that I did not expect at all I was constantly floored At certain points the story got so intense that I had to set down my book just so that I didn t accidentally have a heart attack and end up in an afterlife especially for fifteen year olds The formatting was also really neat Instead of chapter numbers each chapter opened with an element from the periodic table the atomic number serving as the number of each chapter It was really neat and added to the bookAlso I thought that it was really funny that Boo would replace the word God with Zig throughout the entire book because their heaven s god reminded him of a hippie It was just really random and funny I m glad Neil Smith added these little moments of comic reliefuotes NOTE my copy was an ARC so these uotes may not be completely accurate with the published version Look if he acts like a freak here kids will sht on him just like they did back in America Rest assured Mother and Father that Johnny is speaking figuratively Nobody ever defecated on me though as I said earlier I was urinated onI feel prouder than the time I increased the pH of my urine by consuming citrus fruitsA geek was originally a circus artist who performed morbid acts like biting heads off live chickens and swallowing frogs I am obviously given my vegetarian diet no geekI try not to let the outer world wreak havoc with my inner onePhraseThank ZigNote This book was given to me by the publisher in exchange for an honest reviewHappy Reading Leila ve ever read about with the writing style of a muse and then mixing in a plot with
