Enjoyable but trigger warnings

The book was great. I enjoyed the depth of it and quirky characters.
However, I wouldn't recommend it for younger or more sensitive audiences. It has many mentions of suicide and attempted suicide throughout the book. It also had a tone of objectifying women, in my opinion. It's darker than some of the author's other books.
That said, Gordon Korman is one of my favorite authors and does a masterful job in this series weaving an intriguing story and characters who you feel strongly about.
If you don't feel like checking this one out, I recommend the 'On the Run' series or 'Restart'.
