This is about boy who is starting to work out who he is, helped along by incidents, some sexual in nature, some quite normal like bullies and some quite unusual like getting caught up with some really nasty people. This starts him on his life journey to discover who he is and what he is made of...
Only a 7 here as I don't feel the plot is finished or fully developed yet - too many loose ends that need to be finished to provide a higher rating.
While I generally don't like reading about young kids etc having sex, I love this story and while it could finish in its current format I believe the writer is correct in keeping it incomplete, and hopefully one day they will finish it, as it deserves an ending that is as classy as this story is. The writer has a fantastic style and prose with great pace.
Does this story need any sex - no, but it is written in such a way that it does fit and it definitely adds to the story. The sex scenes are exceptionally well written and are middle of the road in terms of how graphic they are, hence the 7.
9 due to the story not being finished. I can't remember any issues off hand that were an issue.
