This book is about a man who faces his childhood of troubles. Before Charlie's parents got divorced, his mother would tell him cute little stories about talking bugs. But that changed…Charlie lived with his dad and brother after the divorce. His dad became very depressed. Charlie told him the bug stories. His dad was so impressed he asked Charlie to write down the stories. Charlie did and then became the world’s youngest published author. As he gets older, his conscience tells him something isn’t or wasn’t right. Will he fight his conscience? Or will he endure the long forever-lasting pain?
I think this book was somewhat okay. The author had the main character going back and forth between past and present. It was hard to follow and stay completely interested in the story. I liked the younger Charlie more than the older Charlie because the older Charlie wasn’t easy enough to understand. Other than that, the story in and of itself was pretty good - it was sort of cute. I found it slightly unorganized because of the many stories placed in a random way throughout the book. I don’t recommend this book for kids under 13.
