"I loved this book ... [It] really digs deep into Otto - from his relationship with his scars and what they mean for his life to his feels on Russel, showbiz, his childhood and where he is in his life at age 26. Reading what motivates him was fascinating because he is the very different character in the Russel universe-which of course make the title of this book very appropriate. ... I'm eagerly looking forward to seeing where Otto goes from here."
