The book is written in too-perfect English, to the point where it never uses contractions. This makes it sound like it was being narrated by an English teacher (in real life, it was), rather than a 14-year old (in the book, it was). This book tries to appeal to "the kids"(which is exactly the kind of demeaning ageist phrase I could see the author of this book using) by having the characters say things like "Don't blow a fuse, dude!" This backfires, and makes it seem like it was written in the 1980s.
Overall, this was a very bad book that I would not recommend reading, unless you enjoy meaningless corporate fluff served up to satiate the stupid.
