The book tells a creative and realistic coming-of-age story
Takes a creative approach by telling the whole story in journal entries, emails, texts, and other forms of communication
Overall, the book provides a unique experience for readers
Telling the story without dialogue can be confusing to readers as sometimes you may not understand who is talking or the setting could change to the next day without noticing.
Brendan Halpin, the author, could do a better job of giving more background information about the characters instead of jumping right into the action.
Overall, Donorboy tells a realistic coming-of-age story through the creative approach of our technology-driven world. I recommend this book mainly to young readers for a unique reading experience.
