This was written in 2003, so keeping that in mind, it was fun to see that the kids didn't seem to all have mobile phones yet, and one of the characters is always listening to his "discman".
Highly recommend it...I'd give it an A-
I enjoyed it so much, I immediately followed up by reading The Piper's Son, where the author takes a look at the same social group five years later through another's eyes. I'm enjoying that one even more. I haven't finished it yet, but I'd guess I'd give it an A+.
