Courtney said:
What I liked most about this book, is that the situations and feelings expressed are so real to what real teenagers face even here in Minnesota. This is probably because it was written by a 17-year-old.

This was a very good book, telling about the experiences of high-society New York City teens who have come home from boarding school. They have to overcome drugs, peer pressure, and life itself. I would recommend this book to teens as their is so language in it.

Twelve is a well-written novel that is impossible to put down once you've started reading it. Taking place over five days between Christmas and New Year's Eve, it follows White Mike, a drug dealer in New York, and other private-school kids who all have some connection to Mike. The characters are interesting, and they all have flaws that move the story along to the shocking climax (not for the squeamish!). Nick McDonell is a great writer, and Twelve is one of the best books I've ever read.
