Deadline - Chris Crutcher So, I just finished this book and all I can think is: Wow, that was so boring. I mean, it was such a typical story for this genre. Boy finds out hes gonna die, boy does everything he wished, boy eventually dies, happy ending *here*. Im not saying I didnt like it- it just wasn't my type of book. The author reminded me of Ned Vizzini, except in a trying-way-too-hard to be hip & philosophical way.
