Из библиотеки хозяина дачи.

Прочитал роман Ли Стрингера "Интернат". Негритянский Горенштейн!!!

Teens who like realistic reads such as Dave Pelzer's A Child Called "It" (Health Communications, 1995) or Terry Trueman's Stuck in Neutral (HarperCollins, 2000) will want to read this one.–Charli Osborne, Oxford Public Library, MI
