James Salley turns sixteen on the day that the story begins, and after being bullied almost all day he finds himself on top of a water tower contemplating suicide. His family couldn't even be bothered to stay at their house long enough that morning to wish him a happy birthday! When he notices someone following him, he begins to ask questions he wished he wouldn't have. James is told that he is the Anti-Christ. After he lets that sink in for a while, he notices that it puts a wrench in his plan of Dorian Delaney falling in love with him.

Starred Review “As James waffles between his conflicting desires to just be a regular kid and to make all who made him miserable pay, readers will probably be able to figure out what choice he will eventually make, but a last-minute twist on James' dilemma is the cherry on top of this absurdly funny and affecting novel. A wickedly funny examination of what it means to choose your own destiny.” —Kirkus Reviews

This book is about a kid named James who has to learn to navigate throughout the twists and turns of becoming an adult. He hits some obstacles along the way but he turns out ok at the end. I recommend this book to anyone over the age of 12.
