Apparently it is being turned in to a movie. Has anyone read the book? It seems very karate kid-ish but who knows, it might be good. What are your thoughts on it?

I read the entire book, hated it. I doubt Ryan is even a martial artist, it was silly and unrealistic, and now I have to do a book report on it for school...

ah not my lucky day.

EDIT: What is the worst part of this book? The unrealistic fight scenes? Jimmie's "teleporting" ability. No, I would have to say the worst scene by far is the incest scene. I might just be closed minded, but cmon, isn't that bad for the gene pool? This book gets a 1 out of 1 million. The one point is for the name.
