I remember myself as a teen and do look forward to when my kids reach that stage. With a book like this there is so much info to be gleaned from by parents that can teach them a thing or two. Candid review. Kudos.

I like teenage adventures and escapedes. This reminds me of the good of old days when I was in their shoes. Our world looked different and has left some memories in us. Good review.

This was a remarkable story of immigrant kids in America. To all non-Westerners who haven't been to the US, this provides a glimpse of what happens to all those communal values and heritages you had growing up when faced with the liberalism and permissiveness of America.

I give it four stars out of four because that scene where parents interrogate their children if they are still virgin was too raw and true for us non-Westerners trying to lead a modern life with modern values.

Goodbye, Rudy Kazoody is a wonderful depiction of life.
The spirit woke me. At that moment, I realized the meaning of that final dream. That meaning scared me more than the nightmare itself, and, at that point, I realized I’d never have the dream again.

It's like two hero characters. This book is just timely. Nowadays, a lot of challenges teenagers may face. Bullies maybe one. But it doesn't end there. The real tough is technology. Gadgets, games etc. We parents, should really handle it with care. Because not easy to unplug kids with technology. Thanks for the review.
