The book Dear Life, You Suck is about a boy, Cricket Cherpin’s life. Cricket is an orphan that is now sheltered in what he calls “prison.” Some people don’t like Cricket. His enemy, Pitbull, gets into a fight with him. This affects Cricket emotionally and physically. Cricket does not like fighting unless it is to protect what he calls “the little ones.” Cricket has to go through a lot. I really like this book because the author made it seem like a 17 year-old was really telling the story. The grammar and the words really tell the type of person Cricket is. I also like how everything is realistic like the real world; it almost sounds as if Cricket’s story was real and he was telling it. I think it’s a great book and you should read it.
