Hmmmm....I really don't know where to begin. There are several narrators, all unreliable. We have one character who thinks she's two separate people. One is building an invisible helicopter. One turns herself inside out. All of them are dealing with issues from their past in the best way they know how. The parents are mostly dysfunctional too.
And that's really the message in I Crawl Through It. It's about coping. And understanding. And helping each other.
Someone is calling in daily bomb threats to the high school, so it's impossible to have a normal school day. An old man in a bush gives away letters for kisses. I'm not really sure what happened in the book. I don't think that's the important thing. The writing is excellent and it's a quick read. I just don't think it has wide appeal.
I'll still read anything King writes, but I Crawl Through It won't be at the top of my recommendation list.
