I highly recommend this novel. Paddy is drifting through life, not really sure about what he wants to do with it. Anthony takes a bite and puts his hand on my shoulder. Would he just get his frigging hand off me? Filled with suspense and mounting tension, B Negative will keep the reader glued to the pages as the story unfolds. The little kids are happy.

As Paddy struggles to come to terms with this life changing news, a near death experience brings it all into proportion.

The crux of the story is a fascinating paternity case. While predictable, the plot may spark debate about reasons people join the military or what it takes to be a good parent. Take classes at the community college? The reading level may not be high, but the narrative does not suffer, remaining incredibly vibrant and complex throughout. As Paddy goes through all of the medical tests that is required for him to join, his life as he knew it suddenly changes forever. I kinda like this book. He still will always think that John is and always will be his dad.

Grant has written a superb novel that is sure to catch the interest of all who read it. His mother reluctantly agrees, as long as he goes to get a complete physical and a lecture from the family doctor. The plot is stronger than the character development. I love picturing him in the black cape with the little pieces of tinfoil all over his head, looking like the total conceited jackass that he is. As he tells his story, it is easy to connect with him and obtain a real sense of his thoughts and feelings. I won't say what I thought it was going to be about or what it actually is, since the synopsis is vague and I think anything else I would say about it could be a spoiler, but I will say that it was engaging throughout and one I would recommend.

It feels a little underwritten, like there could have been more to it. The family characters shown here are spare, but believable as low-income, struggling, and imperfect. Unable to back down, he finds he is alienating everyone around him. I enjoyed the book, but it did seem a bit rushed with everything that was going on in the story. Overall, I found the conclusion unsatisfying. The Paddy is drifting through life, not really sure about what he wants to do with it.

I was so sure I knew what plot of the book was going to be, so when I found out I was completely wrong it was wonderful. I was so sure I knew what plot of the book was going to be, so when I found out I was completely wrong it was wonderful. He sounds just like the average teen of our day, and Grant does a wonderful job capturing the essence of the story at hand. The book was actually pretty good - a short story about a boy who, in the process of signing up for the army, finds out that his father is not actually his father. During the physical some rather disturbing news comes to light causing everyone in his life to see things very differently. Shortly after they break up his mom and Anthony get in a relationship.

His sisters, and mom are both sad they didn't want Patrick to leave and never come back. Her face is all puffy and wet. The dialogue is snappy and realistic, and Paddy's first-person narration allows readers to easily understand his motivations and point of view throughout the story. During the physical some rather disturbing news comes to light causing everyone in his life to see things very differently. Perfect for the reluctant reader.
