I finished Everybody Sees the Ants, and it was really good. I highly recommend it for adults and teens.
A 15 year old boy who is being bullied dreams nightly of rescuing his grandfather who was MIA in Vietnam. The ants (which may appear wearing what he calls gook hats, or wearing tiny sunglasses - they dress for the occasion) offer commentary on his life (think of them as the interior critic that we all have). His mother becomes fed up with his father's refusal to take action to confront the bully's father, and takes her son to stay with her brother for a couple of weeks. While there, the boy makes a new friend, a beautiful girl whose hair stars in shampoo commercials, who is putting on a play along with four of her other female friends. The play is titled "Vagina", and the boy attends rehearsals, feeling the normal things a boy who can't say the word would feel. The book is rich and is a story of a boy becoming strong in himself. Very satisfying.
