My Thoughts

I really enjoyed this volume. I thought it was funnier than the first and laughed out loud many times as I read through it. He experienced so many things in this volume that I related to. He acquired too much stuff because of his hobbies (LEGO and books for me ๐Ÿ˜Š), joined a workout class to try to stay in shape, tackled the tough job of getting stains out of clothes, and had an impromptu visit from the in-laws. Although, he’s much better than I am because he actually agreed to sell some of his stuff. He also experienced many adventures related to his past on the streets, which led to some pretty funny misunderstandings with the cops and a cook off with a formal gang rival. I absolutely adored the short story at the end about the cat, who goes to poop in someone else’s yard but gets caught. Overall, this was a volume that shouldn’t be missed due to the hilarious hijinks. So, I rate the book 5 out of 5 stars.
