Overall I really liked it and am glad to have read it. But so much of it hit too close to home, not in a good way. Thankfully I can say it's not a personal thing so much as a lot of the issues and realities in the story are things people around me have had to be dealing with personally right now. But thankfully, just as things come to a hopeful end in Russell's life, things are looking up out here. Reality has a second chapter for us to embark in and deal with for good and bad. Geography Club has a sequel too, but I don't think I'm ever going to get into it. Good as the story is, relevant as it is, possibly enlightening as the continuation of the story may be, I don't think it's something I'll ever feel comfortable continuing.
