THE KNIFE OF NEVER LETTING GO by Patrick Ness

Unknown-12

Todd Hewitt is the only boy in a town of men. Ever since the settlers were infected with the Noise germ, Todd can hear everything the men think, and they hear everything he thinks. Todd is just a month away from becoming a man, but in the midst of the cacophony, he knows that the town is hiding something from him — something so awful Todd is forced to flee with only his dog, whose simple, loyal voice he hears too. With hostile men from the town in pursuit, the two stumble upon a strange and eerily silent creature: a girl. Who is she? Why wasn’t she killed by the germ like all the females on New World? Propelled by Todd’s gritty narration, readers are in for a white-knuckle journey in which a boy on the cusp of manhood must unlearn everything he knows in order to figure out who he truly is.

Adults?No

Comments: I did not finished the first chapter of this book. Though I wanted to soooo badly, it had so much 'grit' (i.e. perverted talk, cussing, etc.) that I couldn't handle it. I just felt dirty.( I don't know what I expected, the perspective it is from the inside of a pubescent boys mind.) If anyone has read this please tell me the story, I am dying to know what happens, minus the 'grit'.
