By his senior year, Steve York has come through the worst two years of his life. His parents have divorced, and his girlfriend has betrayed him. Worse yet, after running away to live with his mother in San Diego, forays into the drug culture have turned his A-average into a thing of the past. Steve's only hope to graduate on time and avoid summer school is to write a 100-page paper for his guidance counselor. Unfortunately, he has to write about something he knows, and all he knows well are the last two years of his life. Will his assignment help Steve pull his life back together - or cast him adrift for good?

In Rats Saw God, Rob Thomas makes a remarkable debut into the young adult fiction world. With stunning insight and biting humor, he examines the pain and awkwardness of growing up. Johnny Heller's impassioned reading brilliantly illuminates this story of one teenager's search for identity.

First let me say, some parents may object to this being classified as an "Audible Kids" title. This is a funny, gritty, modern and very real coming of age story that makes no apologies. The protagonist is a pot smoker and a smart, good kid at the same time. I am not a high school student, but could totally relate to the story as it was much like my own experience of that time in my life. (What I can remember, anyway, it was a looong time ago!) Enjoyable for enlightened parents and teens.
