The book “Struck by Lightning” is written by Chris Colfer (an actor of the hit show Glee).
The main character (Carson Phillips) is a teenager with a bad attitude and a cynical view of the world. He is driven to overcome his circumstances and determined to be successful in his life.
The book will cause you to laugh and at other times, leaving shaking your head with dismay. I found it interesting, compelling, and overall really enjoyed the book. However, I did not care for the ending.
I recommend the book and give it an A-
