I picked BOYS DON'T CRY up at Borders, glanced through the blurb on the back and knew I had to read it. I scanned the first chapter in store, bought it, sat down and read it in one sitting. While I read most books in this manner, Malorie Blackman did an exceptional job of keeping me enthralled.
Blurb from Goodreads:
