I loved Fat Kid Rules The World. Going does, indeed, have a colorful way with words in many respects. It was the kind of book where I wanted to find out what happened, but I didn't want the book to end. Sure, there was swearing. Sure, there was refrences to things I probably shouldn't talk about, but they all were emphasis to Troy's world. I would recomend this book to anyone, especially musicians.
