The Serpent King - Jeff Zentner

This is a good read for teens, but I enjoyed it as an adult and recommend it for both age groups. It deals with a lot of real life issues—being poor; being one of those kids wrapped up in a fantasy book or series that makes you look weird to the popular crowd; having parents that don't protect you like they should; making decisions for your future; friendships; gun violence; being unpopular; depression; death and more. Even though there are so many great YA books out now, something about this felt unique to me. I believe I may have dropped a tear or two. I definitely felt emotional. The story is about three outcasts, best friends, high school seniors. They are trying to make it though some tough life situations and find their future selves.
