This novel is written in an easy-toread style. The vocabulary is simple, seventh-grade level, and the plot is easy to follow. Klein employs much dialogue, some of it witty. Some readers may object to the choice of words used by many of the characters, for profanity is abundant throughout the novel.

The first-person point of view is effective. The plot evolves out of the problems of Jason's family and inner circle of friends. His parents' divorce is the main problem. Most of the problems, such as drugs, dyslexia, and anorexia, are never fully addressed but are only introduced in a superficial manner. Klein uses dialogue to move most of the plot. There are few and very limited descriptions throughout the novel, and the tone in general is sarcastic.
