When we first meet him, Chappie is a punked-out teenager living with his mother and abusive stepfather in an upstate New York trailer park. During this time, he slips into drugs and petty crime. Rejected by his parents, out of school and in trouble with the police, he claims for himself a new identity as a permanent outsider; he gets a crossed-bones tattoo on his arm, and takes the name "Bone."
He finds dangerous refuge with a group of biker-thieves, and then hides in the boarded-up summer house of a professor and his wife. He finally settles in an abandoned schoolbus with Rose, a child he rescues from a fast-talking pedophile. There Bone meets I-Man, an exiled Rastafarian, and together they begin a second adventure that takes the reader from Middle America to the ganja-growing mountains of Jamaica. It is an amazing journey of self-discovery through a world of magic, violence, betrayal and redemption.

This is an amazing book. It has been described as a modern day Huckleberry Finn and that is no exaggeration.
A litle sidenote first:
Russell Banks, who also wrote The Sweet Hereafter before this book, ties together that books story in a nice way with the story in this one.
Sure it's just during a couple of pages, but since i love the movie that Atom Egoyan made based on that book and how the book works as a companion piece to the movie, i was thrilled to find out more about some of the people from that book/ movie.
So i mentioned that it's like a modern version of Huckleberry Finn and that's true. The book centers around a young teenage boy, who have been let down by not only society, but also by his mother and father.
A father which he goes looking for, so that maybe he will find som peace in his life.
The book is sad, dark and tragic, but somewhere in all that darkness, there is still some kind of hope for light.
As i'm writing this, the book is dirt cheap if you by it used, so i suggest that you give it a chance, despite my horrible sells pitch.
Because it's written in first person by a teen, with deliberate run-on sentences and loose grammar, I at first wondered if the typos could be intentional, as though the narrator had sloppily typed his own transcript. But I compared with the hardcover edition and no. The digital copy is an unforgivable mess. And costs $14.99!
It's as though they used Optical Character Recognition software from a hard copy, then never bothered to check the results. How an established publisher could be this sloppy with an A-list author's work is beyond me. Seriously, Vintage Canada / Random House... get your act together.
Returned for a refund. DO NOT BUY THIS VERSION!!!
