Outside reading week 1
I am reading the book running with scissors and so far it seems pretty strange. When the book begins Augusten Burroughs is a child at age 12. He is a strange kid who is obsessed with shiny things, cleanliness, and his appearance. His parents are also messed up. His mom is a psychopath and clearly has some issues and his dad is an alcoholic. They hate eachother with a passion and eventually get a divorce. His dad even pretends to die after his mom pushed him into the countertop. Even though this book seems strange i have a feeling that it will be very interesting.
