After reading the first chapter, I thought I would start talking using a teen slang – putting the word "like" after every word. I also thought that the book is about the fight between gangs. But it was not. Yes, there are fights, but it's not the point. It turned out that the book is pretty good. And well written, conveying human emotions without unnecessary frills. Only the name of the novel "Galveston" could be different, because it sounds like "guide" for tourists. Although, in a way it is - Guide to Galveston, but not to its beaches and hotels for "golden" youngsters, but to the places that show the real side of life of many people, which sometimes bordering with “cloaca” of relations between persons. The novel leaves a strong impression, although heavy.

An excellent debut that brings to mind the best of Daniel Woodrell.
