This book was provided by NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.

Martin just 'is'.  Then one day he writes an essay about landmines and why they're a problem.  His teacher challenges him to do something about it.  So in the next month, he stages a concert benefit to raise money to handle the landmines.  Martin is very smart and a little smart-alecky, which comes off as a real 17 year old boy.

The book was a little confusing for me at first, maybe because it jumps right in and you have to figure it out a bit, maybe because it's like a diary.  But it does have beautiful quotes and artwork.  The story did seem to end rather abruptly, leaving you wanting more.  It's okay though, the author did his job well.
