    “Its real, honest, raw, and brutal.” 
    Give me a real, genuine reason why you enjoy this that ISN’T the first line i wrote. I’ll wait. 
    The most headache inducing, obnoxiously written, deplorable, sickening thing I’ve ever seen.
    “That’s how life was like for kids like this.” 
    Fuck you, Larry Clark.
