I do not agree with the publisher's summary of the book. I don't think Marsh believes the world hates him. He hates his life, he hates himself, and he just needs someone like Edna who is overcoming some of the same issues and can help him through it. It's about reaching out and trusting in someone, it is about being honest with yourself, it is about facing reality rather than avoiding it.
Everything in this book is bizarre, from Marsh’s stories his and his father’s exploits with women to Edna’s visit to a local psychic. The descriptions are wacky and vivid and very representative of the time period and the youth scene. Marsh and Edna are fully-realized characters, if a bit over-dramatic. It is likely that the intended audience for this book no longer exists, but a modern teen reader might appreciate getting a sense of teens and their struggles in a prior time period.
I must say I was disappointed that Zindel reused a concept from "The Pigman" - the teenage houseparty gone way bad, with disastrous results - as a climax of this book as well. That seemed a bit lazy to me.
